Has anyone experienced a paraffin/diesel odor inside their car?? This has gotten worse over the last 30 days, and with cold rain in the area, the windows are up most of the time. The smell is constant, and is strong enough to make your eyes tear. Smell is there when first entering the car, when driving, even with the windows down. Had the smell a couple months ago during winter, but it went away when the car was left sitting while on a business trip. Now has returned even worse than before.

Have an appt at the dealership next week, but would like to know if others have this problem. Also, car has 13,000 miles on the engine, and no leaks or drips in the garage.

Thanks
John

That could be an exhaust leak or a fuel leak. Also, post moved to mk5 section, the Audi A3 is built off the mk5 A5 platform.

It's probably not a heater leak because that would be a different odor.
