    I have 2015 Prius v3 and recently changed water pump on it. 2 weeks before car started giving low gas mileage and there was burning sensation and tongue tingles after 5 minutes of driving. No smell of fuel in the car. Gas mileage has improved after 2 days of changing water pump but that burning sensation on tongue and mouth has gotten worse. Should I get some CO fumes detector. Please suggest any remedies.
    Thanks

    This is a story I haven't encountered before, but if you have any concerns about possible CO in the cabin, getting a good CO detector (ideally the kind with a ppm display, not just a honker) is cheap, and probably the only way that you will either confirm the issue or set your mind at rest.

    This sounds more electrical in origin than combustion/CO, but agree with the need to get it to ground, quickly. A CO 'dot' in the cabin will tell the story.

    Open the windows and drive. If present, CO will be eliminated with air dilution. The same test works for refrigerant (freon) leaks. Electric usually has that typical burning smell most have experienced.

    Tongue tingling is usually low blood sugar, low calcium levels or anxiety.

    Also been known to be an effect of battery acid/vapor or engine coolant/vapor. One reason I don't do the 'taste test' of car fluids. Always shake my head when I see people do the sniff and lick test....on car stuff...

    At the risk of stating what should be obvious:
    SEE A DOCTOR.
