My focus has developed an oil leak, just seeking some advice.
I've popped off the top cover and have found oil around the (what I
think is) EGR Valve. Apologies for the massive photos, hopefully your
browser will resize them.
This is what I think is the EGR valve.
As you can see, this side is caked in oil.
I'm not sure if part of the pipe connected has broken. I am pointing to the area in question.
The EGR valve itself seems fine, but the pipe connected has a "chunk" missing. I've drawn a diagram on paint to explain.
There is a lot of oil around that bolt when you put your finger in
the missing "chunk". I thought this pipe was for exhaust gasses, but I'm
pretty sure the EGR valve does have oil running through it.
Could it be that heat has worn the pipe, making the chunk break out.
As the chunk has gone, the bolts arn't holding the seal well and the oil
I've tried to explain as best I can. I do my own basic repairs but
have had a previous focus die due to an oil leak I could not find.
Cheers in advance!
