    Default diesel leak

    im getting a diesel smell coming into the car when driving. I've had a look in engine bay can i can see diesel under the boost sensor so is it coming from the injector because i did loose that when i changed the filter to get car started again when cars engines running i cant see any leaks around that area or could it be leak off pipe

    You said filter, do you mean fuel filter? I had a leak on mine because i didn't tighten the fuel filter cap enough when I replaced it.
    I had to use a vice to tighten it properly and it stopped leaking.
