Default CO in the cabin?

Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone else has/had the same problem I'm
experiencing. Two months ago my exhaust manifold opened up and allowed
fumes to enter the cabin. That is fixed with a new manifold. I don't have
aftermarket headers or anything like that. Now with no exhaust fumes in the
car, I'm still experiencing symptoms such as tiredness and headaches after
driving the car for 30 minutes or so. This is with the windows closed.
When they are open, I don't experience it. Any ideas? This problem is
really bugging because I was hoping the repair would have fixed it but it
didn't. Thanks

It sounds like you need to get it checked for exhaust leaks.

Check it again - I had the exact same problem on a '91 accord I had up until
recently - same thing where if the fan was on and I was in stop and go
traffic or just at a light I got dizzy fast and almost passed out (then had
to turn off the fan every time I stopped). What it boiled down to was a few
things you should check - 1st was a warped exhaust manifold, so since the
seal was no good where it came out of the cylinder head then there was
exhaust in the engine compartment. The 2nd thing to check is the engine
mounts because as odd as this seems if they are worn then the engine
movement stresses the flex pipe attached to the bottom of the exhaust
manifold - that flex pipe is rigidly affixed to the firewall by a few metal
rods but the moving engine (bad mounts) is making the pipe move and breaking
a crack into where the 2 rods hook up to the flex pipe thus another exhaust
leak. The 3rd thing to check is obviously the exhaust flex pipe.

Thanks Jim! Now we are getting somewhere. I will check those areas soon.
I actually took it to a dealer to have them check for leaks. They found
nothing. I don't think they took the time to search.
