Oil leak

Post by ARB1974 »

Hello all.

Thank you in advance. Can I say hello first., am Tony from Liverpool and I have a oil leak.

It looks like it's coming from the black plastic pipe work with the white clip on it. This leads to the turbo.

All down that side is wet and looks like it has been leaking for a while. (My wife's car)..

I have started to clean it and hope to have another look after a ride, can any one help with this please Any areas I need to be looking at near that right side of the engine

Thanks again all

It’s a breather of the rocker cover going into turbo inlet pipe. I believe there should be a seal on it. Have seen the clip broken leaving the pipe not be connected properly.

Hi, and :welc: to the forum.

If you post up the VIN (the security systems on the forum will obscure it from all but Moderators) they can look up the exact details for the car, and then offer advise that is better suited.

Sounds like Simple76 has it spot-on. There's a sealling o-ring that degrades and loses it's seal, plus the puny clips on the pipe holding it in place may come loose with vibration.

Thanks all for the reply.

Yes that's where it looks like it's coming from. It is loose but all clips are ok on It.

It moves quite a lot, she has lost 80% of her sump via the leak just glad I got back to the UK to notice the massive oil patch on out drive lol
