In Topic: Oily Smell - 1.8 Tdci

Yesterday, 08:30 PM

Is it an actual oily smell or like diesel fumes? If its fume like, you probably have a failing or failed injector seal. Have a look around the injectors and the clamps. If they have black shiny stuff or a sticky residue around them, thats likely the cause. Happened to mine. Fix is easy, its a small copper seal, problem is it can be a pig of a job getting the injectors out.

Thanks for that. Just had a thought. We have diagnosed an iffy injector as we cant hear it firing when we listen to it using a screwdriver as a sounding device. How can I tell if its the injector or the wiring. Would it run if I swapped the wiring from 2&3. We feel that it's the injector as we have just changed the copper seal but it still seems to be leaking diesel fumes and carbon is still building up around it.

Stoney... thanks for checking this isb/aux socket. I sent 2 messages to the seller and got no reply. I wanted to make sure that it did what it said on the tin.... have you by any chance tried the aux connection and if so what is the sound quality like. I will likely get one of these and use for the aux connection first, it would look much more oem. Connector is currently poking out of cubby

thanks. Sorry to be unclear. The air filter js a pipercross and was cleaned as per manufacturers guidance. Oil filter changed with oil. Seems like egr blanking may be the way to go then. Is terracleaning a waste of money seeing as I put archoil through a few months ago. I've got a Haynes manual and mechanic brothers in laws code reader gives nothing.

The factory fitted aux connector is known for issues with bad connectivity caused by the internal pins. Have you tried waggling the connector in the socket whilst playing something through the aux input? If still nothing then take it back and get them to fix under warranty
