2008 CRD Leaking Oil, Three Sources
My CRD has about 118k on it and has just presented me with the first set of problems ever. My wife noticed small amounts of oil on the driveway so I removed the skid plate and when I looked under the vehicle I found some oil drip paths around the transmission and down the oil pan (appear to be from turbo intake tube seal), and on my alternator. So far I have found three sources of oil leaks.
1. Oil Filler Cap
-Replaced seal, all is good.
2. Turbo Intake
-I have the orange seal and need the part number for the black seal if anybody has it handy.
3. Base of Dipstick Tube
-Has anybody else experienced this? Seems like it should be an easy fix just looking for some advice if anybody has ever dealt with this on their CRD.
I was wondering if the blow-through on the oil cap is due to increased pressure from a faulty CCV. I have no evidence of this (check lights) but I've never seen oil blow through a filler cap. The new seal appears to have resolved this. The CCV is $30 at Advance; should I just replace it?
Any advice is much appreciated.
