Oil leak - 2.0 tdci - Anyone know what this part is?

Recommended Posts

I have got an oil leak on the car and had a look underneath. Although visibility is limited I think the leak is coming from the item circled in red.


The pictures attached shown an engine from the front, with the item in question located at the back right. The other picture highlighting the particular item in question.


Can someone identify what that item is?

Had a garage look at in the end, turned out to be a leak from the camshaft carrier which required a new gasket, with a further coolant leak established from the coolant pump.


I had a single instance of the leak causing a burning smell and a bit of smoke come from the back of the engine which is why I went and had it checked.


Was an expensive bill but at least its sorted.
