    Default Diesel Smell When Warm

    Had the beast just over a week now and had 1-problem,no3 injector seal leaking,
    Not an issue...did it at my friends garage..easy enough to be honest but think its been like it for a while...anyway replaced the 45p copper washer all back together washed it off and fine...the way i found it was by chance to be honest..steamed the engine off and the water sits on the injectors..had bubbles coming from no3 so a tip if anybody might think theres is leaking...
    Anyway cleaned all the crap off and carbon,runs fine just now can i for the sake of god get rid of the diesel smell thats been there for god knows how long its been leaking,
    The engines bone dry but somewhere the diesel smells still lingering how or where could it be...in the pollen filter maybe?

    Any ideas chaps.

    I don't know what else it could be apart from diesel burning off or a leaking injector seal still,i have set my recirculation to on all the time myself,as i'm up and down with the drivers window enough for it not to be a problem.
    Not that i smell diesel when i'm driving along btw,i just think it will help keep any smell or fumes out hopefully.
