IT MEANS YOU GOT SOME PROBLEMS DOOD!!! haha. That's certainly not right, under no circumstance do you sniff exhaust fumes. If you like the fact of carbon monoxide filling your lungs and entering your blood stream then knock your socks off...just don't expect to be alive after say 5 mins of doing it! As for the sweet smell...i'm not game to even want to attempt!

a sweet smell, not usaully from the exhaust can be a very very hot transfluid, mine has a sweet smell to it when it gets a good thrash but i know the tranny is in need of a really good service

I noticed this smell aswell, but I was in a warehouse for a car auction, with about 20 cars running at once and hardly no ventilation.

It was kinda sikly cherryish kinda smell, can't describe it.
