I had the same smell and I popped the hood and my coolant tank was leaking and oil was in my coolant due to a bad oil cooler.

Diesel smell in cab of Citroen c4 picasso 2008 when fan is on. No wet around injectors?


Go under the car and check for signs of fuel leaks, you will see very obvious stains if fuel is leaking from the system. I suspect you are smelling diesel exhaust.

Motor oil went up a lot in the crankcase


Assume you mean the engine oil level on the dipstick is getting higher?

I would be surprised if it is hydraulic oil (unless you know different) but I suppose diesel fuel is a possibility though it is many years since I have heard of such a thing, especially if the engine is otherwise running smoothly.
The last time I saw that was on a small diesel engine with a conventional dpa type injection pump driven by oil-fed gears. The pump had sprung a leak and begun to fill the engine. There was no mistaking the strong smell of diesel...

An internal coolant leak can have the same effect but without the smell of fuel.

Toyota Caldina 1999, too smoke from exhaust


if it is diesel and you have black smoke you need fuel injectors either serviced or replaced also you must check the engine valves clearance. If your smoke is blue white smelling unburned fuel renew injectors.If it is blue white smelling oil and diesel then you will have piston rings and valve steam seals.

Ford F250 fuel smell


check the hoses in your fuel tank and the fuel tank itself. hoses might already been worn out or the tank has some leaks.

2006 f350 slowly lost power on the highway untill it comletely stalled and wouldnt start at all, I had to be towed.


Is this a gas motor or a diesel? Either way, there are a few things to check. If this doesn't help, reply or repost with more specifics. Either type of engine will do that if there is water in the fuel. Was it damp/rainy recently nad the tank less than half full? Did you just get fuel? Even if not, drygas or diesel fuel conditioner won't hurt. If it's a gas motor and you just got fuel, is it possible that diesel got put in the tank? I've seen it several times (once because a valve failed at the gas station) I figured it out by taking a gas sample and smelling it. If you let the sample sit for a while, the gas starts to evaporate and the diesel smell becomes more prominent.

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.

Strong Diesel Smell inside HJ Turbo Diesel Landcruiser


Since you didnt notice any change in the performance of your engine, ill presume there's nothing wrong with your fuel injectors.
look for moisture around your gas tank cap, the hose and clamps going down the tank, around the fuel gauge sending unit of your tank. have your fuel line checked from the tank to your fuel injection pump, give particular importance around the connections of your fuel filter, fuel pump, and the return hose from your fuel injection going back to your tank.
Diesel do emit strong hazardous odors that may stick on carpets inside your car.
