        My natural gas furnace & hot water heater are side by side in a small utility room. There is a smell similar to that of car exhaust fumes which seems to come from the water heater. The furnace has been serviced, the ductwork has been cleaned, the gas company has checked for gas & carbon monoxide, with negative results. Any ideas?
