    Hiya gang,
    Over the last few days I've notice a smell of diesel wafting into the cabin when stationary. It's raw/un burnt so I'm just wondering if this engine has a common fault of leaking diesel somewhere in the engine bay?
    Any help welcomed!
    Thanks Jono ImageUploadedByTapatalk1354573151.018448.jpg

    Just found an old forum post which suggests leaking injectors or pump seals! Will have it investigated!!

    They never leak on the petrol's, probably as the pressure is lower
