Customer Question

hi i have a v220cdi. about 6 months ago my vehicle went into limp.i checked the oil and the level was off the scale. i got it recovered and its sat for 6 months due to lack of finances and me thinking it was head gasket. someone told me that if an injector leaks it can fill the sump with diesel. so i reasoned if its water itll run out if i open drain plug, if its diesel it ll be runny and perhaps smell of diesel, no water ingress but the oil is almost jellified. any ideas?
