When you breathe in auto exhaust you are taking in carbon monoxide, CO, this compound has a great affinity for the hemoglobin in your blood. Normally, oxygen is transported by the hemoglobin in your red blood cells(erythrocytes).The CO binds to the hemoglobin molecule and displaces oxygen. The new compound formed by CO and hemoglobin is called carboxyhemoglobin, it is toxic to the bodies tissues because oxygen is no longer able to reach all the cells of the body. When the cells are deprived of oxygen tissue death occurs. I have researched the question about causing increased thickness to blood vessels and can find no evidence of this, however a person would in fact be more susceptible to heart attack(AMI) acute myocardial infarction because the heart muscle would also be deprived of oxygen. Before this would happen though, one would lapse into a coma from increased CO levels which would result in respiratory failure and death. The person would not die from an  AMI, they would die from respiratory failure.

You can do the MLA style yourself.
