Just bought I a 9-3 1.9 120 diesel 54 plate. I have a oil leak on the passanger side of the car and looks at the front of the car looks like it coming from the intercooler. This appears to be banana shaped at the bottom with oil leaking out from one end.
The question is should the intercooler contain oil? Or do I need a new engine or turbo as well?
What a new intercooler likely to cost?
Is it best to remove the bumper to change the intercooler?
I could have not driven the car more than 20 miles. last owner claimed the cam belt has changed and I wasnt so Ive got some vey big bills on the way.
I already needed a 72000 mile serice with cam belt, front disc and pads, and couple of tyres, and now a new intercooler.
Should I sell the car and cut my losses or fix it.
Thanks for you help in advance
