    2.0 tdi oil leak

    just got my car back from its MOT, it passed, but was advised it has a small oil leak.

    i looked under the engine and you can see the bottom of the engine is a bit oily. is there a common place where a 2005 2.0 tdi engine would leak?

    also looking for an s-line front bumper/grille//bonnet if anyones got one!

    hmm i'm not aware of any problems with them, but you'd or a garage will have to try to locate the leak, can be a pain!

    Or change a few pipes in that area, will cost you more though!

    Turbos pipe can leak as can the pipes to the intercooler.

    Sump bolt might be loose of sump gasket.

    Rocker cover gasket could be perished and may drip oil down.

    Cracked sump maybe (i can get them fairly cheap if you need one).

    You need to get the bottom platic engine cover off (a few bolts all round) and take a closer look!
