    Default any 120 owners had fumes smell in car?

    hey fellow 120'ers, i have had a fumes smell in the car for a while, so far i have traced some to the egr cooler clamps being loose and exhaust escaping, i have replaced egr and new gaskets, checked all round the engine and can see no leaks, but she still has a exhaust/diesel smell comming from somewhere near the vacuum pump. any of you guys had similar and found out what it was??? ideas welcome, cheers.

    My Veccy runs great too and to be honest the fuel consuption is brill, avg 44 mixed driving and damn near 58 mpg on the motorway. i think the third injector harness issue is related to the 150's, but not sure, maybe someone knows better. I did find that the clamps on the engine breather from the rocker cover to down the back of the engine wern't tight, its those stupid things VX use, so i changed them for jubilee clips and it does seem to smell less, going on a trip to Scotland next week, so will see how it goes.

    on the front of the engine next to the turbo where the egr pipe takes it feed from there is a spring pipe and it has a seal that can leak and give the smell in the cab .,, also check the inlet manifold gasket they can leak across the top it is hard to spot so a small powerfull torch is needed to fiddle into the small areas of the manifold .....

    Not limited to the 120's but a lot of Vec's are having flexible exhaust coupling failures underneath the car.
    Have a look where the downpipes end and check around the flexible mesh for soot, as this also causes fumes in the car.
