no i don't smell diesel in the coolant, infact i replace front head gasket, head look like was leaking oil  out of the exausted ports, but notice all good, did so some marks on the liner number 1, but i cleaned with a red clouth cleaner paper, and mark when away, I remove air compresor head gasket, install new gasket, test, and maybe did something it not building air like it was, and i notice that it is doing it, when engine is cold,
