Help with this please (pics included)
#1
Ive just been to look at a berlingo on a P reg, 1997 i think, its either a 1.6 or 1.8 im hoping you could help me here.

The van has covered 118,000 miles

The problem is on the third injector there is what looks like oil seeping out
I started the motor and actualy saw for myself, after thinking carefully it may be where oil has leeked onto and there is an air leak from the injector

the problem is on the third one

but ive circled the first as its a better view

Also can you see any other problems regarding the oil leak?

Thanks all for any help and hope its as simple as an O ring Big Grin

May just be the rocker box cover which is frequently over tightened causing a leak
around the then distorted gasket.
But if you've witnessed a compression leak from No 3 then you have to ask yourself
why this hasn't been sorted out for the vehicle sale if it's a simple job?
Pull the injector clean the area replace the 'O' rings/washer and re-assemble
.....sounds simple enough...Why hasn't it been done, and how long has it been running like this?

That would explain the oil from the top. Do u think the injector is just not tight as its leaking? Im not sure how the fittings are around them

If the injector has been leaking for any length of time (over) tightening it
may make the problem worse. That may be what's already been done!

Very true, do u know how they fit in? What kind of seal do they have?

Hmmm...it's better to wait until one of the guys familiar with the Mk.1 1.9 diesel
reads the post.
I'm absolutely sure that they will know!

Thank you all for your help but i got rid of the van for an 04 plate 1.9D

They seem a lot more popular and hoping i have less problems with it

Ill open a separate thread for the 1.9 as it could be confusing for someone reading

Thanks again for all your input
