I recently bought a diesel Jaguar S-Type. It was fine until 2 days ago when I could smell exhaust fumes in the car. Today, when out driving, I could see the fumes in the car.
- What could be causing this?
- What should I do?

Apply some back pressure to the exhaust by lightly holding a rag over the exhaust tip and have someone listen and check the engine bay for leaks.
If there is no leaks in the exhaust it could be injector seals, a smell of exhaust is quite a common symptom before they start making a chuffing sound. When the engine's running pour some soapy water around each injector to see if they produce bubbles.
