Hi All,

Mini Clubman D 2008 model, which i believe has the 1.6 HDI Peugeot engine in it.

Do the Injectors have Sleeves within the hole where they go into? IF so, would they cause a Diesel leak if no good?

Thanks.

yes there is chromed steel tubes they sit in as the border between the crankcase and the injector as such,, if leaking diesel chances are the injector is cracked or where the injector two parts fit together the seal as broken or in has come loose, either way best option change the injector,, another leak place is around top where electromagnet sits, once again replace or get injector reconditioned at specialist, or can buy refurb on ebay for around £70 exchange, injectors are encoded so will need to reprogram ecu when replaced if you ever remove injectors they must go back in same holes as encode is not the same for all 4

Hi Mike,

I have tried another replacement injector and within a day there is a poddle around the injector base just like the old one i had in there...! Im thinking maybe the sleeve is missing from the hole where it goes in the head, and that is what is causing the oil leak, i have tried everything else. How would i know if the sleeve is in there or not, is there an obvious way of figuring out without disturbing any of the other Injector which are 100% fine? Is there any way of checking this?

I have a new Injector, replaced all copper and other seals, the problem is same as it was with my old Injector which i thought had an issue,...!

Thanks again.

have a look at this link notice the part of how the rubber seals go and you must use a heavy duty sealer on the black bottom seal that seals the injector tubes to to alloy top cover or oil will leak past the tubes its a stupid design designed to go south at some point, i always put sealer on the clack rubber bottom rings and let it go hard before starting engine,, i think this is where the oil it leaking,, also worth sticking a screw driver in the injector hole and see if the tube moves, if it does it needs knocking back in to its hole,, common if injector was very tight in the tube and gave it force to get it out, can come loose

you could reuse the old tube by using the other end to slot in to head also worth sticking some red loctight on that end make sure clean oil away with some brake cleaner or thinners that should help seal it,, when injector is bolted down it holds it all in place,, use a block of wood and hammer to tap it in to place thats how i do them,, have used sealant before like well seal , links below

or loctight red
