Perhaps you have a small exhaust leak or a cracked egr pipe.
Diesel exhaust smell lingers or raw diesel fuel (liquid fuel) smell?? Fuel line connectors come up by the passenger side strut tower.
Look for wet/damp spots and have someone start the engine up when cold while you look around the back side of the engine for exhaust leak. Engine cover removal may make that easier.
