[Engine] Engine cutting out, oil in inlet and on cam cover (pictures)
#1
Hi folks,

My 2003 1.9 diesel Berlingo (non turbo) now struggles to run...it cut out while driving a few times, and got progressively worse - now it won't stay running for more than a few seconds.

There's either oil or diesel on the top of the engine under the inlet, looks like it could be leaking from injector 1?

There's also a lot of oil in the inlet from the airflow meter through the butterfly/EGR assembly and all up the inlet manifold, but particularly on the runner closest to the oil/diesel on top of the engine (see pictures attached)

I was thinking it's a leaking injector, but the oil level in the sump seems fine. I haven't compression tested it but it wasn't smoking at all. Is it worth me cleaning it all out and seeing if it runs or is it something more serious?

Any ideas guys?

The oil/crud in the inlet could be from the EGR. Block it off. Is your cat blocked/collapsed. We had this happen in a Renault and it gave similar symptoms i.e. not running for very long.

Your pictures seem to have vanished. I'm sure I saw them there a few days ago.
