Diesel smell in cab

Every once in a while I notice an exhaust smell that seems to come through the vents whenever I come to a stop. It resolves once I'm back up to speed. I've been trying to look for patterns, but it doesn't do it every time. Any ideas??

Remove you engine cover and rubber pads, check around your injectors if its wet, mine had a bad seal on one injector.

Also check the fuel filter which is in the engine's V underneath the covers.

when its leaking from the turbo inlet you sometimes get a waft of hot oil smell.
