    Hello guys, my car has been dropping oil/diesel on my drive for a while, its a 2.5 V6 tdi 1999, just had a look at it and its coming from the back injector, its only leaking slightly, Ive just tryed to wipe it with a rag and its black in colour, why would this be as its diesel ? anyway do these injectors have a copper washer in them, if so can they be bought,

    Thanks in advance

    Sounds a bit weird to me as the injectors aren't lubricated by oil. Could it just be dirty fuel?

    The injectors have a copper washer between it and the cylinder head. You can buy them separately.

    Mine does the same from the middle of the offside bank of injectors. The rubber insert around the injector pipe going through the cam box cover was twisted. Reset that and it fixed it, but several thousand miles later it started weeping again. Ultimately it needs a new rubber grommet but it's not exactly top priority just now.
