I had a little diesel smell a couple times. I could only smell it when I pulled in the garage and shut the engine off. It was coming out of the engine vent line on the front right side of the engine. Later! Frank
My 2001 D/A smelled like diesel fuel. The service advisor just blew me off. I added this complaint to the list each time I took it in. I finally printed up a list of problems with detailed descriptions of my problems. The written word is powerful, and looses nothing as it is passed from advisor to mechanic. I got GREAT service. They finally found a small leak at a fuel injector. They broke a fuel line trying to fix it. It took several days, but the problem was fixed.
