    Default CDTI 150 Cambelt done in record time, plus fuel filter odd smell

    Did a cambelt on a friend's 1.9 CDTI 150, in 2hrs 30 mins. Absolute record in the amount of them i've done (admitittedly on various cars) pish easy

    Odd to find that doing the fuel filter on it smelled very peculiar though. It was blacker than the ace of spades, but didn't smell like diesel Smelled more like dog shat?? I cleaned out the housing and filled it with forte diesel treatment before sealing it with a new filter, popped in a little 2-stroke oil, and it sounds absolutely dandy now Just couldn't get over why it smelled like durg shoite

    Any idea's? (apart from someone put durg shoite in the tank?)

    Nice work.

    Although just a heads up as you shouldnt put the diesel treatment neat into the filter housing as it burns out the injectors if you do it often (The treatment makes the combustion hotter to burn off the crap)
