Hi all,

Bought a 1998 2.8 TD and it had small leak. Thought was rear main after having look but after a clean could see was just the sump gasket. Took it to mechanic with new gasket and all fitted up and run on stands no dramas at all. Get home and guess what it's a million times worse then it was. Before it was a drip or 3 over night now it's flooding out. Definetly the sump right at the back near where the gearbox joins. It's behind the 2 beakers that hold engine and gearbox together.

Any ideas on what it might be? How much to fix?

Thanks Mark

Also check the oil lines to the turbo.

They drip and blow back towards the bell housing and can look like a sump gasket leak.

Cheers

Justin
