Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Hi all.
Iíve only had the car a week or so. Iíve been noticing exhaust fumes in the cab when I stop. Itís worse when the air con or fan is on.
Any ideas?
Itís still under warranty so Iím sure the dealer will help out. Theyíve been good so far.
Thanks

Re: Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Hi, welcome, sure you will enjoy the car once this is sorted.
How much have you driven the car?
Could be a spill burning off which should clear after some decent journeys.
Could be a leak from just about anywhere but hopefully easy to fix once found, your dealer is the best bet.

There was a popping sort of click sound from mine for a while with a fume smell, fixed by re-seating an injector.

Re: Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Yeah I thought that but it shuts ok. It seems to be when the fans on so Iím guessing itís something in the engine bay.

Re: Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Leaking injector seal? does the engine make a 'chuffing' sound, like a steam engine would? I've had the seal go twice on mine in year and a half makes it smell very fumey in the car.

Re: Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Itís not been that bad since Iíve mentioned it. I will try again today with the air on on. You say expensive but what are we talking ? Hundreds or thousands?

Oh wow. Maybe it needs a trip back to the garage for a check up.

Re: Qubo 2011 cabin fumes

Got the news from the dealer today that itís the injector seals that have gone. Could this cause any other damage to the engine. Again itís the 1.3 MJ. Diesel.

Unlikely..

Its obviously leaking to atmosphere.. so other than mess..contamination and fire risk

The mixture within combustion chambers should have been fine
