    If running main engine, may be a manifold exhaust or baffle leak being blown back into the cab. Can you smell it while driving?

    Crack window, get a CO detector ($30 at Walmart, you should have one anyway), get to repair shop.

    Like other said it probably anti gel. That stuff smells bad after you open a bottle. Even if cap back on.

    Asking for help and not giving an update - that; at least
    we are still alive, and found/solved our problem, is becoming the norm on here. Many of you gave good ideas what it could possibly be causing the vapor issue in the cab. Follow up?
    Are you still alive???
    HEELLOOOOOO?????
