    Default Oil build up questions.

    Whilst swapping my glow plugs today I noticed some build up of oil in various places. Can anyoe shed any light on where it could be coming from, please?

    Oil is building up under the big round thing. Could it be the 'rocker' gasket?



    Theres some soot on the turbo and oil collecting undeneath.



    Oil all over the plug.



    Any suggestions, please?

    Top pic looks like rocker cover weeping...

    Bottom pic, could be a boost leak, get someone to hold the revs on boost while you inspect the pipes...
