Smell of fumes
#1
Hey everyone I'm new to the forum so be kind. I have recently purchased a 2008 van with 109k miles. I have got the orange engine warning light on the dash and I get a smell of fumes in the cabin especially when I reverse. Do you think these two things are related? Any idea what might be the problem? Thanks

What engine?

Is the exhaust blowing?

It's the 1.6hdi. No exhaust seems fine

Are the injectors blowing?

Are your rear door seals in good condition and fitting well ?. The exhaust comes out the back just under the nearside door.

I don't know about the injectors I'm not very mechanically minded. How would I know if the injectors were blowing? I will check the door seals on the rear doors when the rain knocks off.

Pull off the top plastic cover of the engine
Take a flashlight and look around injectors. Do you see any traces of oil?


Regarding the warning light - it would be nice to connect the van to OBD II code reader or to Citroen diagnostic equipment (Lexia).

Thanks for the advice. I am borrowing a code reader from a friend to find out why the warning light is on and I will check the injectors. Thanks for the YouTube link

Post the codes up as soon as you have them (and before you give the reader back, as there may be questions)
