    hi all, I'm wondering if you can help me identify this leak please, it's above the head gasket and it's oil and I'm wondering if it's the manifold gasket. Now hopefully 2 pics will follow image.jpeg

    Looks to me like it`s oil from the turbo going through the intercooler and into inlet then leaking out from hose and inlet manifold gasket, a bit of oil in inlet is normal, and were is you oil filler cap:D

    Cheers for reply

    It's defo not out of hose and I've had it off and there is a bit of residue from when the egr was on that I couldn't get out when I took it off but there's no fluid oil, that's why I was wondering but I see wot your looking at. I think it's gasket but just wanted to check with you boys. I put a more detailed thread in the 300 Tdi section but didn't get many answers so did this one. Cap is just out of shot, i took it off to get cover off, clearer in the other thread

    Thanks
