    Maybe the shop used glue to mask the other odor, the odor you don't want to know about, the odor that if you knew was there you would take off running and screaming across the parking lot, the odor, the odor you don't want to know about.

    Don't tell him about that odor. If you talk about that odor, it makes it real. You don't want that odor to be real.

    In the original post you didn't tell us the odor was there when you were first assigned the truck and before the exhaust leak developed.

    I said the truck had 20,000 miles on it when I got into it it's a 2018 Mac it now has about 37,000 miles on it. two weeks ago I found the exhaust leak but I have been in the truck for about a month. it's only been one other person in this truck. The truck was purchased brand new. it's a very small company he only has four trucks. the only shop that's worked on this truck is the TA in Springfield Missouri.
