Since the vent is close to the kitchen window, doesn't it make sense vent gasses could get in the kitchen? Right? If you push the vent through the roof, all gasses will go above and away from the window. This will take a hole saw and the proper vent flashing then you have to put it in ...

Here is a starter to show you the process...

not good. The vent should have been hooked up right after the trap and gone out the roof.

Other may help here but I think you could put in a cheater valve that allows air in but stops the gases from coming out. You cut in a tee and place this thing up beside the sink in the cupboard.

Villa; the pipe drops 8 ft to the basement before it meets the vent.

I have recommended the Air Admittance Valve previously. They work.

As to the placement of the vent ... I agree but he may be getting vent gasses through the window too. Have you ever done a vent that stopped under the overhang? Nope.

Between your recommendation and mine, I think we have covered the bases, yes?

If he puts in the stuter valve for the kitchen, can he then run a vent for the laundry back to the stack in the basement and do away with the pipe outside.

The window is an awning type tends to get the air from the bellow, also doesn't get opened that much because of the furnace exhaust near by.

The trap from the sink is just above there to the right. Could i put in a T then a pipe over to the vent and another T connection?
Or better to put the T in then a piece of pipe then the Air Admittance Valve going up?

I was thinking you could do something like this and pick up the other vent in the basement and run them over to the big stack, but thats a wet vent and I don't know the rules on that.
The vent outside still delivers flamable gas to the area under the eaves.

In that case there is cabinet.

I can just connect the sink drain pipe, after the trap, straight across to the vent pipe with another T connection?

The trap for the sink is bellow the floor in the basement just there. There was no room with the garborator above. I think it is called branch ventilation pipe.

Yes, I think! Maybe put the other valve on top of the vent outside.
