    I have got a 1998 2.1td with 85K. recently noticed oil dripping down the
    back of the engine it also seems to be coming out from the inlet manifold
    unions. Also the pipes into and out of the intercooler seem to be sludged
    up. Any Ideas.

    Cheers Alan

    I have exactly the same problem with the same model car, however, I have not
    figured out what is causing it yet.
    My best guess is worn turbo bearings or a stuck EGR Valve, causing an
    increase in turbo temperature...

    Nobody has suggested an alternative yet.

    If it's any consolation though, mine has 148,000 miles on the clock and it's
    done this since 89,000 miles.

  3. I had a leak on my 1995 306 D Turbo coming from somwhere near the top of
    the engine on the driver's side. I'm not sure if its the same engine as
    yours but It turned out that the cylinder head had cracked. Check to see if
    there is any oil in the radiator coolant. If there is, you may need a new
    cylinder head or head gasket. Unfortunately, if this is the problem, It's
    expensive.
