OIL COMING FROM MY LDV MAXUS 2.5 DIESEL EXHAUST JUST RUNING OUT

Hi..

Hopefully i can help..

Ok Engine oil from the exhaust or dripping out can be several things all of which need checked out..first is whats your engine oil level at - is it too high - if its is then you need to get it drained off asap and hope that sorts you out - the other is failed turbo oil seal on the exhaust turbine side of the turbo unit not the inlet compressor side - if an turbo oil seal has failed on the turbine section of the turbo then oil will simply leak out into the exhaust system - blue smoke/oil leak from the tail pipe - if you sure its is actually engine oil then those two areas would one of the best places to be checking out - check also the coolant system incase what your seeing isnt actually coolant/water mixed with the carbon/soot deposits within the exhaust system leaking out..possible headgasket failure if thats the case - I do hope this helps if you need to ask or include anything futher then please just ask before you rate
