Hello diesel Jeepers

Just purchased a 2007 Grand Cherokee diesel 2 weeks ago with 35000 miles on the clock and just discovered a small puddle of oil on the shop floor leaking from the left side of the engine.I have been reading reports that it may be a turbo return line O ring leaking or a EGR gasket problem whatever it is its leaking pretty bad.Any thoughts of what it could be and parts needed would be great. Thanks Pat....

Re: Hello diesel Jeepers

Welcome to the forum.

The intake hose from the air box to turbo (includes pcv hose) gets saturated and leaks oil into the valley which then has a drain that runs down the back sides of the motor coming around and looking much like a rear main leak. You can pop this hose off and iirc you can look down into the valley to see if that is where there is an accumulation of oil, if so replace the pcv valve, and the hose "assembly", At work I then spray out the valley with brake clean and compressed air and viola.

Re: Hello diesel Jeepers

That was the problem it was leaking from the ccv line that attaches to the turbo intake.I think I will install the racor engine breather kit to minimize oil ingestion into the intake and Turbo..
