Losing oil, rocker cover?

Post by piglet » Mon Jul 17, 2017 8:27 am

Oil is going down a bit, nothing on the undertray and the engine looks reasonably clean except for oil pooling around the injectors.
But not enough to account for the loss, so is she starting to burn oil at 120K? Hope not.
Anyway a new rocker cover gasket wouldn't hurt, are they all the same for the 2.0 Hdi?
Is there anything else to check?

Thanks in advance.

Answering my own thread.
Changing rocker cover seal/gasket harder than it looked.
Top timing belt cover has to come off and the complicated bracket holding the injector harness has to be loosened.
Plus the new seal fell out everytime I turned it over, stuck it in with grease.
See if that dries it up.

Thank you for listening!

I read that as when he turned the cam cover over but I see what you mean :cheesy: Just needs a few dabs of, well, anything really.

I like the way you all say nothing and let me struggle through the job.
It fell out every time I turned the cam cover over and got it into position, It was late and my back was aching by then.
