    in my experience,

    it means either your EGR is blocked / and or your inlet manifold is on its way out buddy.........

    as Grimo72 says, the inlet manifold swirl flaps wear out and let the pressure air and recycled exhaust gas out as per these pics. Take a look around the arrowed swirl flaps to see if the area is black with soot to confirm.
    There are other places to leak, but look at this first.

    I had the EGR off about a month ago and cleaned it out then used a carbon spray cleaner its on a 55 plate and done 104,000 miles and still getting over 40 mpg.

    At the moment of smell there is also increased fuel consumption, after turn off/on coming back to normal consumtion level.

    Same question, for the same car and engine all the web. But no one owner post back on his thread about solution

    I got it too, however still no solution founded... ill continue looking once back home...



    p.s
    on 1,9cdti change the water pump every time you change the cam-shaft belt

    I had this and found my egr wasnt bolted tight enough as the thread had gone on a couple of bolts, causing exhaust gas to escape. If it is leaking from the egr you will see black soot around it. It must have been taken off by a previous owner and overtightened. I had to get some slightly longer bolts which sorted it.

    my 150 does it, and it after checking the swirls egr and every other ****** place I could think of it went in for MOT.. THe exhaust flex is cracked.. That might just cure it

    another similar thread on this running just now aswell, Same thing I'd think. In my case it was the flex pipe. Not an expensive fix

    Same for me with my Signum.

    But on the plus side if you have a DPF (Like the Signum) the flexi bit is only £35
