Cold weather, raw fuel smell
During cold weather, I smell diesel fuel from under the hood and in the cab. Haven't found any leaks or drips. Seemingly a seal is 'weakened' somewhere, but where do I start?
More stats? It's a '99 F250 7.3 with 150,000 miles.
I can't believe this is an exhaust smell (though I won't discount the possibility). It definitely smells like fresh fuel, just as if I were standing at the fuel pump. Even without the truck running I can smell it from under the hood on the coldest days (like single digits or less). Yet there is no spotting on the ground or under the hood that I've seen.
