When I start my 2010 Diesel CRV I smell exhaust gas in the car or when the car is idling in traffic. There are no apparent leaks around the engine but a strong smell exists in the engine bay. I have replaced the cabin filter and examined the engine air filter again having replaced it and all is well. The smell diminishes when I switch off the cabin fan.
There is one thing I noticed, there is a misting of oil in the inlet to the turbo air inlet and extending up towards the air filter box but the filter is clean and dry. But as these things are separate from the cabin air flow I can’t see a connection. Any ideas?
Thank you

Hi!
Had the same problem with my 2011 ES-T. Took it to the dealer who did a diagnostic check for £60. The outcome was that the EGR coolant pipe had cracked and that it would cost £409 to fix.No mention was made of the TSB or extended warranty.

I then mentioned that this was a known issue and that there was an extended warranty. ( Info that I had gained by reading this site) The isue was then passed to the service manager who said he would ask Honda UK who said YES to a free repair including labour!

So if you have this problem make sure your dealer asks Honda. If you don't ask they you won't get.

Cheers,

I have the same fault and the local dealer, who have been fairly useless, told me the free replacement only applies to the Accord. Does anyone know how to check this?

I detected the diesel fumes on my 2011 CRV immediately after a 12 month service... As the fuel filter was changed I thought it maybe spillage onto the exhaust pipe that I was smelling but it didnt go away. It was particularly noticeable when stationary and the engine was idling.. A re-visit to the Dealer quickly confirmed that the EGR pipe was cracked and I was wondering if the "damage" could be attributed to accidental work whilst the service was being performed, or coincidence.. I have no idea of the location of the pipe and whether it is at all likely ... The good news is that I've been offered the pipe replacement ( Honda pays ) but the labour ( Dealer says ) is my responsibility ( £140+) .. Has anyone unearthed a TSB , and is it worth pursuing Honda or the Dealer for a better solution?

May not be relevant, my 2007 had a "chuff" problem. Basically one of the injectors was leaking. I would stop for traffic and the cabin would stink of diesel, driving off cleared the cabin.

Ive just been told the same issue following my Service, Honda apparently agreed to paying for the part but leaves £216 labour costs which is unfair. As this is a known issue I am taking it to the Ombudsman and Honda HQ and if dont agree to cover the replacement I will hit Social Media like a demon, anyone else had success in getting them to cover it. Its clearly a known issue and at the similar stage of owning this car everyone reporting it seems it should have been subject to a recall. Sadly I feel so strongly I may have to rethink if Honda is the make for me going forward
