Oil Leak question

Postby Jmlfletcher on Sun Jan 24, 2021 1:34 pm

Hello

I have a MQ triton and absolutely love it.

I’ve noticed in the last couple of days that an oil leak has developed. If I’m standing at the bonnet it’s on the right hand side of the engine underneath the largest hose that heads to the radiator. The leak is under the hose on the metal housing that is there. There’s a fairly good coating of oil.

Any ideas what the cause of this is?

Can I still drive it for the next few days until I can get it to the dealership

Thank you
John

It could be your intercooler output seal leaking.

Not serious to worry about, but worthy of attention.

The other option could be the intercooler output pipe to the throttle body might have a split in it.

More serious if it is this, advise getting to dealer ASAP.
