Hello,

I’m not one to understand the inner workings of a car, but I was looking for some guidance. I have. A 2011 MK1 Kuga Zetec TDCI 140.

I started to smell fumes when I was driving up the motorway and when i popped the bonnet and took off the engine cover noticed there was a lot of oil around the sparks. I had the seals replaced a few months ago but the problem is persisting. Any advice?

Might be worth taking it back to where you had it repaired and let them have a look.

By seals I presume you mean the copper sealing washers under the injectors which is the usual suspect.

If it wasnt leaking before the work you had done I would deffoe take it back to who ever undertook the recent work you had done on it.

Hi,
The injector seals were replaced and still have the same issue with oil deposits etc.

I’ve been told about possible crankcase breather? Not sure if this makes sense of could lead to something?

Any advise?

I’m not sure where the crankcase breather is but if I recall, they can have a valve or filter in them.
If you could do the signature and include present mileage please 👍

Start the car and have a listen around the injectors for a chuffing sound and also look for fume vapours. If you see or hear anything the seals have gone. I have repaired a lot of them even after a short time when other garages have done the job because they had not cut a new seat so the new copper washers will not seal and tend to leak again after a few hundred miles.
