Breakdown - Oil on the floor (Diesel) ~ Solved

Hi Guys,

Another day another issue.

Just went to go to work this morning, reversed out of my drive, put it into 1st gear and it conked out. Tried to start it, nothing. No warning lights or anything, it ticks over but does not start.

This is oil all over the floor, popped the bonnet and the culprit is behind the engine block, a small pipe leading away from it. It looks like the plastic sheath has popped away, not a clue what this pipe is, possibly to do with the Turbo?

Here is an image of where the oil is coming from.

Any help would be massively appreciated, I just can't keep on top of the car at the moment. Thinking of calling out the AA / RAC, but if they can't fix, I might aswell have had it towed to a decent garage to begin with.

Cheers.

Ticks with no start normally means empty battery. It is not connected to oil.
Oil separator ( on the picture ) is to be cleaned sometimes. Sure half of the users have it looks same.

could be the turbo oil feed but this wouldn't stop the engine from firing up, and obviously untill its stop leaking it shouldn't be driven anywhere

low loader time

Yeah I've got the green flag coming out.

Everything is fine except for the massive oil leak on the floor i.e on the road and the oil behind the engine.

Not warning lights or nothing.

Issue has been resolved for the sum of 108.00.

Turns out... Wait for it... Drum roll....

One of the clips connecting the pipes to the Fuel Filter had come loose and popped off. (Would explain the hissing).

The mess on the floor was Diesel from the Filter.

Plugged it back in, started first time.

I joked with the mechanic that it was a record for quickest call out time.

Oh well, that's one worry off my mind

Cheers.
