    Default When idling it smells of exhaust fumes inside the cab?

    Hi all,

    As it says, when the car is idling with the fan on the cabin inside smells of exhaust fumes. Turn the fan off or get moving again and the smell goes? I have the 1.9 CDTi 8v engine.

    I did google and saw a thread on yahoo of all places about a man with a dodgy swirl flap that was causing his issues but I'm 8v so I thank god don't have that! Any ideas? I'm thinking it might have something to do with the EGR valve? As said weirdly when your on the move it doesn't do it?!

    We're off to Folly Farm tomorrow so it'll be given a blast down the motorway. I've heard about this high revs to clean out the EGR valve. At 70mph in 6th its about 1500rpm so I'm guessing it'll need to be in 5th? What revs should I make sure I get up to and also for how long??

    I have the same problem. It's the flexi on the front pipe of the zorst. Phone up a local tyre and exhaust place who quptes me about £70 to get it changed.

    Superb! I have I think 5 days left on my warranty so hopefully that's that covered! If not then I'll ring around for some quotes
