    Default 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 Diesel Smell

    Hello, I'm new here and this is my first post!
    I have read the posts regarding the problem with the smell of diesel in the car when travelling. I own a vectra 1.9 CDTi SRi 150 estate (54 plate) and am experiencing the exact same problem. My local vx dealership is really bad and I have no confidence in them at all. I have booked it into a local auto centre today who I trust and have let them know what has been mentioned on this site about the problem, hopefully they will get it sorted for me. Will keep you posted.
    Cheers
    Michael

    Default Diesel pong

    When does it smell? While you are on the move or only when stationary with the engine running, eg at traffic lights?

    Picked the car up tonight. It needed the front pipe to the exhaust replacing as the old one was split causing the diesel smell. £140 fitted.
    Hopefully should be ok now!
