Smile 86 420SEL cabin emitting exhaust / oil fumes

My sweet car is giving off the smell of exhaust and or oil
fumes in the cabin only when I activate the heater, if I leave the dial gauge to the coldest setting no problem with the smell. If I stand outside of the car no smell.
The car has about 173000 mile, it's not burning any oil to report. The car runs like a dream, (sex on wheels) what gives?

Hey folks I'd like to thank all of you for the help I've received from this wonderful website.

Are you sure it is not the sweet smell of antifreeze? If it is:leaky heater core and/or related connections.
