    Default Leaking oil :(

    Hi folks,
    my CDTI 120 8v seems to have a slight oil leak from the are in the photos below

    The first picture is a top down view and the leak is underneath the join of that big pipe running right. The second picture is taken closer in from the passenger side of the engine.

    Firstly, name that part as I haven't a baldy.

    Secondly, how bad is this?

    I've had the car since Feb and it's running fairly well, only thing I would say is that there is a puff of white smoke on start up from cold ..... other than that I have no issue with the car.

    Any help/info is much appreciated Thanks

    first pic is the turbo pipe from inter cooler to inlet manifold. the second looks like the throttle body. its common for them to leak a bit of oil their as the oil breather goes into the inlet manifold.

    Ok, first pic was just to give an idea of where on the engine the affected area is .... it's below where the turbo pipe starts there. The second pic is the affected area from the side, directly below the join of the turbo pipe.

    So it's not a major issue and is common enough? It's not a lot of oil and the car isn't drinking oil.

    Cheers
