Diesel Fumes In Car

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a zetec 1.4 2006. It is my first diesel and while I am pleased overall, I am worried about a diesel fume smell in the cab from time to time. Is this a common problem and can it be corrected?

it is common on the 1.4 for the injector seals to leak, so check for any signs of diesel around the injectors that could be causing the fumes.

Hi check the pipe from the turbo to the air cleaner for splits

Could be a cracked catalyst or EGR issue, do you notice it more when our stationary?

Notices more when stationary. Just opened the bonnet on tickover and noticed wisps of smoke coming from around the air filter box. Does that signify bad news?

Do you have fuel heater (webasto/eber), and how cold is the weather been in there where you live?

That might give nasty smell and wisps of smoke when stationary and wind blowing from just the angle.
