Lots of Oil around tdi cyclone

Hi all-


I went to replace the manifold gasket today and did a quick inspection of the bay. I noticed a lot of oil around the cyclone and towards the rear of the engine. Any help on what is causing this so I can fix while I have some of the engine apart? Does it simply need to be cleaned/ replaced, or indicative of something bigger? Thanks.

Two things, actually 3.
1. Clean the hose fittings to the cyclone & re-tighten the hose clamps.
2. Adjust your valves and ...
3. Replace the valve cover gasket & torque valve cover bolts to spec.

Mine was only leaking where the cyclone bolts on; the o-ring had shrunk/hardened and was not sealing.
New o-ring and all good.

Need to clean it up to see where it is coming from. More likely than not, where it attached to the valve cover. There is an o-ring in there.

I had that same issue a long time ago as well, new o-ring as Jeff suggested....but I also smeared mine all the way around with some Hylomar blue as well.

As stated.....this is a normal fault with age and heat:I usually take off the filter and rinse to clean it out. New o ring and a smear of normal instant gasket and all is well...off you go!
