Thread: Z19DT diesel leak

    Z19DT diesel leak


    My starter motor in my 2008 9-3 1.9 TiD 8v broke down recently. When I checked the starter motor it was full of diesel. The brushes inside the motor was completely destroyed because of the diesel.

    I haven't found the place where the leak originates from. Any tips on where I should look?

    i highly doubt its diesel being where the starter is located.... ie no where near the diesel system

    it could be oil vapour from a leaking crank seal it could be dot4 from the csc or gbox oil leaking thru the csc seal but highly doubt its diesel imo

    I found this video. The fuel rail is partly over the starter motor. If this is the case in my car. Is it just a matter to tighten the connection?

    if you can see diesel dripping from there,then i would look at the tightness of the joint yes
