Found A Leak On My Mk3 1.8 Duratec He Mondeo

4 posts in this topic


Just popped the bonnet on my car, and noticed, on the right side of the engine (passenger side), under where the airbox sits, I have a small pool of oil sitting on a casing. Not sure what it is.

Have taken some photos.

Hope they can help?

Lost some coolant aswell.

Engine has a compression test, and nothing abnormal showed up.

Sorry this is vague.

Hope this can be of some use?

could be from EGR valve but looking at state of oil i should clean engine gearbox and then re-check for leaks.theres a few water hoses that run around that side so just check them to or do a pressure test
