    TTiD Coolant leak

    Have a small coolant leak (needs topping up about very 4000 miles)
    Seems to be coming from rear of engine but very difficult to see exactly where
    The engine block behind the starter is damp with coolant

    Anyone have experience of this?
    Inlet manifold or oil cooler ?
    Ive checked the EGR cooler and all dry underneath

    Hello Saabpilot could be the inlet manifold as they are made of plastic .
    also the EGR cooler runs from the back to the front of the engine it is a large component.
    I would be inclined to get it pressure tested to assertain exactly where the leak is .

    Likely inlet manifold. Seems a relatively common complaint. Leaks at the alternator end of the inlet, above cylinder 1. The plastic seam of the inlet fails
