My husband is a mechanic and to get some extra money hes working on car's out of our garage. Problem is when he pulls motor's out he keeps them in the garage, and the smell SOMEHOW lingers in our house. I guess its like Anti freeze and Oil. He swears its non toxic to our son but I dont know. What is everyone's opinion do I need to go stay at my moms ughhhh he drives me crazy

I would check with your pedi. I know my husband does the same thing for now and then. I try to air out the house as much as I can but now it is coming into winter. You can always get a carbon minoxide dector we have and it nevers goes off when he is doing that stuff. Your husband can also look into get a vent that you hook up to the exhaust and it vent right outside then.
