205 GLD oil sump leak

Post by maxfox44 » 25 Feb 2002, 00:08

The oil sump gasket is leaking on my diesel 205. I know it's not a big job to replace it, but does this leak affect performance or not.

Its not going to affect performance, it will though make a hell of a mess on your drive and the road. Is it the gasket or is it the oil seal behind the flywheel? My BX (same engine) had a leak which thought was the gasket and it turned out the seal.
Give yourself about 2 hours for the job, the sump can be a bugger to move. The worst bit is scraping every bit of old gasket off the engine block, with oil dripping off the crank in your mouth.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle> Enjoy!
