kerosene smell in cab

I have a 2007 Ram 3500 with the 6.7. I have just developed a smell in the cab. When at a stop with the air recirculation off you can smell it. I have looked for oil leaks and do not have one. I changed the crankcase filter at 65,000 and I now have 81,000 on the engine. I do not smell it when I am driving. only at a stop. Any Ideas?

Check around the EGR cooler. I would say it is cracked. Have you been in for any exhaust related repairs?

I have not had any exhaust issues in the past. When it stops raining I will check it.
Thanks

I took it to a diesel wizard today and he found the rear gasket on the egr cooler had soot around it. it appears to leak when the truck has ran a while and the metal expands.

Thanks
John

That is another area they can leak, I should have stated that or have been more clean with my earlier post.
