    Default Diesel reek!

    For about a month now when car is running, it stinks!

    I took my tuning box off about a mnth ago so that doesnt have anything to do with it, it's been serviced and boost sensor cleaned but what else could I do to help?

    I was thinking maybe a bottle of 10k boost, and some redex cleaner??

    Take the vanity cover off and check there is no diesel sitting around the glowplug and injector area. If so possibly the injector seals are gone.

    Mileage : Lots

    10k Boost and a good glug of Redex will give it a clear out. No harm in it. Could just be one of those things. My car stinks when it's stationary but on the move it's alright. I believe that garages are putting additives in the tanks now to stop the diesel from gelling up. Might be partly because of that.
