Issue / Question:
I purchased this truck about 2 years ago. Excellent condition and great truck. Lately I have noticed that you can smell a stronger diesel smell than before. I can even smell the diesel odor coming through vent when you turn ignition on while waiting for the warmer light to go off before starting. This truck is not driven every day and sometimes for weeks. Any ideas or should this be considered normal?

Answer:
I suspect either you may have developed an exhaust leak in the engine compartment or the re-circulate door for the A/C isn’t working.
