Volvo Penta marine diesel 2003T engine has diesel in sump

Volvo Penta marine diesel 2003T engine has diesel in the sump. (diesel diluting oil) Took out injectors and injectors and had them tested. both fine when tested on bench. took out feed pump and tested to 4 bar no leak. Is it possible that diesel can leak into the sump via one of the 3 injector pumps while running, if so what is the cure. the engine is 17 years old but has only 200 hours.

Thanks
Siggy

I owned one diesel engine. I would say the engine siphoned the diesel after it was shut off.
The throttle controls may not be closed. The injectors were tested for their opening and spraying, but were they tested for closing and sealing when off? Diesel fuel lines maintain a vacuum or they get air bubbles. Cooling cylinders create a draw right into the crankcase. Last idea-crankcase vent clogged

Massey Ferguson 5455 small oil leak from engine breather pipe after day work the dip stick showing to much oil when cold about 1L to much


diesel engine --- diesel fuel is leaking past the pump seals into the sump and raising the oil level
that is diluting the sump oil and the oil leak is oil/fuel evaporation for extra hot sump oil
suggest that you discuss this with a diesel pump specialist shop as diluted oil is not good for the motor

Volvo penta aq151 how do drain engine oil


I haven't worked on boats for some time but in your case I remember we pumped the oil out through the dipstick tube. FYI you are in the wrong category, this is for cars. I would also contact a local boat dealer on this as well in case there is a simpler way to change the oil

Causes for excessive fuel consumption in caterpillar D398 Engine


V12 twin turbo with 2x 6cylinder injector pumps.

Excessive fuel consumption can be ...
fuel leak on to the ground.. Obvious
fuel leak into sump via fuel pump body... Check sump oil
worn piston rings... Grey Smoke
glazed cylinder walls...smoke
burnt valves... Need compressin test
faulty turbo(s)... Sound, check manifold pressures
blocked exhaust line/muffler... Smoke black
faulty thermostat so motor doesn't get up to temperature, what is motor temperature ? ... Smoke black
lack of oil, wrong grade of oil for temperature
scavenge fuel line from injectors blocked or not returning to tank
faulty injector(s) causing poor fuel spray
faulty injector(s) bleeding fuel into cylinders... Smoke black
faulty injector pump balance
faulty injector pump timing
faulty coupling between injector pumps, even can be one 180deg out of timing
bad diesel fuel

Are there mechanical losses in motor load ? Alternator fault ? or gearbox fault prop fault ?

What is the exhaust colour ? Black or grey ?
What are the inlet manifold pressures ?
Using a thermometer ( IR if available ) what are the cylinder head or exhaust manifold temperatures ? This may isolate problem to one or more cylinders.

If you can supply more information I may be able to help track down the problem.

Kubota M 5030 2.8 6 cyl. Diesel in oil sump. Why?


Diesel gets in the sump from an seal leaking in the fuel pump through to the drive gear and out into the sump. If it has an inline pump( one where the injector lines are in a row at the top of the pump) the fuel will be leaking past the plunger elements and into the pump sump which then drains back tot he engine sump. IF it is slight but consistent sometimes injectors will dribble when shut down and the fuel will by pass the piston rings into the sump. Talk with a diesel pump and injector repair specialist for any faults particular to the Kubota fuel system

I am unable to remove the injectors from a Volvo Penta diesel 3 cylinder engine (2003).can you suggest anything. Thank you.


Hi there?
If they got carbon deposit bult up round the injector, it helps to sock it in cocacola. Yeah i know weird but it does the trick.
If there is no such thing then try twisting them left and right and eventually it will give up, you may need to use a hamer........
Good luck.........

Diesel mixed with oil in the sump


You run again the generator but before running, check & mark the oil level. Then stop the generator & wait until the oil settle to the bottom of oil pan. Check the oil level again & if the oil level is higher than the marking before that's means you have an engine gasket leak.You need to replace that gasket.
