Exhaust Smell in 2011+ Explorers

By Jeff D.

One of the things I notice about the Explorer is that the low pressure zone that is created behind the Explorer due to the duckbill spoiler seems to be much stronger than any other vehicle I have owned in the last 30+ years. When driving it in cold weather upon initial startup, there are times I can't see out the back window because of the amount of exhaust water vapor that is drawn into the low pressure zone. Could that vapor that is being drawn up against the back of the vehicle be causing the problem? If so, a vented duckbill spoiler might solve the problem once and for all.
