Td5, smell of diesel

Recommended Posts

Haven't had chance to have a look, yet, but slight but pervasive smell of diesel on this morning's 50 mile run. Is there likely to be a 'usual fault' I should look for?


sparg :blink:

i had a diesel leak on my td5- was the fuel connector block - check lt hand side back of engine, easiest if you take off engine acoustic covers, apparently they are prone to leaks- if this is it you need to replace the connecting block and gasket- approx £100 part.

thanks for those ideas - damn! none of 'em easy or cheap! ah well. ON the question of fuel usage, I have to run a test - I had wondered, actually, over this last week whether I was using slighyl more - it's normally quite reliable at about 28.? mpg, so I'll see
