      Millions of other SUV’s have exhaust tips in the same location as the Explorers’.
      The smell (plus CO) is coming from under the hood, and being sucked into the interior through the ventilation system.
      Ford is dancing around, not telling the real truth about the source!
      PEOPLE- these are newer cars with stainless steel exhaust systems! I still have the original, no-rust system on my ‘05 with 180k on it!
      I suspect the real problem is cracked exhaust manifolds, which are not cheap, nor easy to replace....just another manufacturer taking the easy way out!

      Although not all but an increasing number have had the 'smell' disappear by the current 'fix' of sealing the back end. I also don't see offering to fix 1.4 million vehicles as just "dancing around". Some exhaust may indeed be coming from the engine bay due to an issue there, I suspect that number is very small. I haven't had the issue in either of my Explorers and haven't found anyone around here yet that has.

      Got my Sport back 2 days ago after the CO concerns fix was completed. Have done multiple hard acceleration runs that previously caused the rotten egg / sulfur smell. Pleased to report that I have not had the smell since the fix was completed.
