Hi All

Could someone please tell me where the oil is coming from it is the big 90% shaped pipe on the front right hand side as you look at the front near the battery it looks like it goes into the inlet manifold,I have attached a picture with a wiggly arrow pointing to where the oil is blowing from.I have only had the 2002 Freelander TD4 ES Auto for about a month and have not had time to get an oil change and service.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank You.

Roger.

I think you will find that the big 90 degree pipe is either split or the jubilee clip has come off. I had exactly this problem and there was oil sprayed everywhere. You can get a new pipe off ebay for about £6. You should also clean out the EGR valve next to it as it is probably full of oily gunge.

Thank you Dorsetfreelander for the reply and the link,I will do as you say and replace the pipe and clean out the EGR also I have purchased the BMW mod for the crankcase filter as I dont know if this has been done and will get the garage to fit when I take it in for service.

Thank you.
