Hi guys I have discovered this morning I have an oil leak. I can't see whete its coming from and theres quite alot of it. Is there any main places this comes from or is it a case of pot luck till the leak is found.
Guys most turbo side oil leaks i've seen are the cam cover seal on the passengers side.
Its because the angle of the engine allows the oil to sit here, the rubber gasket goes slightly hard and the seal is lost. Get a torch and just check around the passengers side cam cover where it meet the cylinder head. See if there's oil around and below this point?
I shall try and have a look. I took off the gear gator tonight and there was oil leaking from the internal gator so going to see if theres any oil leaked out tomorrow. Where should the oil gauge sit on the dash, im sure mine used to sit at 4 but now it settles on the white mark inbetween 4 and 0.
Yeah that's another common place for oil, (ATF) to leak from.
The ATF over time make the rubber gasket around the base of the gearstick go bro tule and it splits causing a leak. New gaskets are about £20 from
The gauge your talking about is oil pressure buddy to level.
