Leaking from where and how bad is the leak? If only minor, get under the vehicle and check for signs of leakage at the drain plug and around the oil filter - these are the most likely culprits. If not obvious, clean everything up, drive and look again.
If these places are not the source, (assuming this is a petrol model) look at the rear of the engine from the top and from underneath in case it is a leaking head or valley gasket
You really just have to get in there with a rag and clean it up. If you dont see the leak right away clean everything that looks wet and look the next day to see where it is wet again. Then you will be able to see where the leak is coming. Did you pay for this solution or is it free?? just wondering fix ya has a new site so i dont know how it works yet. Let me know. Thanks
it is not your oil pump, as your oil pump is internal, it could be the oil pan gasket or the oil filter, try getting under the vehicle with a torch & having a good look to see where the leak is,when you know exactly where it is leaking you may be able to solve the problem, firstly determine if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil ETC.......hope this helps.....cheers.
CK- Try a set of Valve Cover Gaskets. It cannot leak from the front cover area because it is where the timing belt rides and there is no entrance into the engine EXCEPT the front CAM SEAL... Remove the cover and look toward that seal behind the cam sprocket. If so it is also leaking down into the front cover and beyond. But look at the Valve cover gasket first, since you mention that source. Auvedersein!!!
sounds like you need a thermostat, that should take care of the no heat, the defrost is controlled by engine vacuum sounds like you have a vacuum leak under the hood somewhere all i can tell you is to look around the passenger side of the intake manifold for a small ( a little smaller then a pencil ) blk vacuum hose if you do'nt find a leak suspect the vent control switch.....GOOD LUCK
It could be transmission fluid. This can leak if not sealed off and they smell similar. If you can get some of that leak on the ground and a good amount, put water onto it. If it turns pink it's transmission fluid. If it stays black the oil line may run under there somewhere. Don't really know about them German cars.
