Re: 2008 GK CRD Oil Leak

You are sure it isn't transmission fluid? Can you check around the oil filter housing?

Re: 2008 GK CRD Oil Leak

Check oil filter. It is located on the driver side. If filter is not mounted (torqued) correctly it can leak.

Re: 2008 GK CRD Oil Leak

Tracing it back to the origin of the leak would be the only way to tell for sure whats going on.

If dealer says oil cooler and mechanic says turbo look at both closely.

Re: 2008 GK CRD Oil Leak

It's been awhile, but thanks for everyones input. turns out, the oil leak was from the Oil Cooling unit - $1,400 repair. It's been about 3 months, and no leaking since.
