I began having the same problems. I could smell gasoline when the car was idling and even after I cut the engine off. It got so bad that I had to give the car gas when I stopped at red lights so it wouldn't idle out and cut off. It began making hissing sounds and when I finally broke down and took it to get fixed, all it was was a busted hose. I'm not sure which one, and I'm not very car savvy, but I was sure relieved!!!

Sounds like its leaking fuel, i would get it to a garage to be checked before anything happens. Not meaning to scare you be leaking petrol is a real hazard.

Ford fiesta diesel endura turn's over & try's


Normally, only 2 things stop a diesel from firing:
1. no fuel
2. not enough compression

No fuel can be caused by (obviously no fuel) or a failed fuel pump. To test, have someone turn the engine over and then sniff at the exhaust - does it smell of unburned diesel? (If you've run out of diesel recently, you may have an airlock in the system, this needs bleeding out.)

Not enough compression needs specialised equipment to test - that's a garage job.

There is a ticking/knocking noise coming from engine and the interior of car you can smell the diesel on ford fiesta 1.4dtci on 56 plate.


Have your valve clearance checked for that noise. As well as the diesel smell, fuel lines must be checked for
leaks. If your car is emitting heavy smoke, and it seems to loose power going uphill, your engine must
be due for overhauling. However, if your problem is just
knocking and diesel smell, valve clearance adjustment
and fuel line check up will correct the problem.
