Strong smell of raw diesel.
Good morning brothers,
My SD is a 2005 that is stock as far as I know other than flashing a tune Friday from Vivian at quick tricks. (Looney)
I bought the truck a month ago and the strong diesel smell started before I flashed.
I can't use the hvac unless I make sure recirculation is on. If I open the vent or the windows, the smell will just about run you out. Even after parking, the whole area around the truck smells like diesel.
I'm pretty sure it's not exhaust, to my nose it smells like raw diesel. But I could be wrong. I don't see any obvious leaks but then again I haven't had time to thoroughly look either.
I googled last night and came up with about a dozen things to look for but I wanted to get some advice from the experts on here.
No, I'm not monitoring yet because my SCT TSX won't connect to my android phone yet. I had to borrow an iPhone to flash my tune. But before I flashed I checked for codes and there were none.
Sounds like a common problem is the o ring on the fuel regulator, but I'm not entirely sure how to check that.
Any help is appreciated.
