diesel fumes

For the last week ive been smelling diesel when I walk by the front of my truck. And just recently I can smell it in side the cab not all the time but everyonce in awhile.
Its not leaking any fuel that I can see none on the floor or any where else. Anybody have any ideas on where to start to fix this problem????? Thanks Tenmore

What about where the fuel lines go into the heads?

Try rubbing your dry hands all over and under and around the fuel bowl and lines going in and out of it. maybe a nut is loose on a line, or a worn out rubber gasket on a line. or maybe intercooler boots are loose. or, like in my case, the breather tube off the driver valve cover was very loose and needed a pipe clamp on it - it was leaking oily fluid down the valve cover.
