td5 oil ingress under seat

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, just been doing some preventative maintainance after noticing oil in the plug under the seat. I know this is a common failing, sprayed with switch cleaner and its looking good. I've read the the other end of these wires is attatched to the head, and should be cleaned too. I've removed the plastic covering over the engine to find it. Is it the quite small plug on the left hand side as you look at the engine head on? At the very front of the engine in line with the oil filler cap?

Has you engine been struggling. As the oil ingress through the ECU lead will be coming from the engine under the rocker cover. These cable end up needing replacing because the oil channels through length to the ECU plug. There will be archive of how to remove correctly.

Thanks for those replies, I read the link with interest. To be honest I hav'nt had any running problems, I just know its a common fault and thought I'd check mine to see how it was looking. I'll continue to monitor the situation with a view to replacing the loom in the near future.
