Well to my 7 year old daughter it means she wants to stand there and sniff it as she loves the smell of diesel exhaust.
Are you saying the exhause smells like diesel fuel or diesel exaust? I just want to clarify that.
Pre 2008 trucks, soot in the exhaust pipe is normal.
Your engine could be running rich. You might want to verify the condition and integrity of the catalytic converter but there are a few things that can cause this heavy exhaust odor and it's an indication it's running rich. Do you also notice any smoke beyond what is normal? I might start by looking at the ICP sensor for a biased condition or wiring problem at the sensor connector that will affect the signal. A power balance test will identify injector concerns. That would be a good start...
I have a 2007 Dodge ram 3500, it's 13 years old . I just noticed in the last couple of months that it has a very strong diesel smell coming from the exhaust. I'm trying to figure out why this is. I put Lucas in it every time I fill it up since the day I bought it and it has ran great. But now it smells and there's Arley and I said coming out the back tail pipe. I have the same question videoany one
any one? is this just normal brake in?
