Re: Oil Smell 91 200TQ Again!


Hose to thermostat housing: 447 121 055B (tightening clamps won't help?)

Some drops of oil down the front of the oil pan is what I saw when my PS
pump started to leak. At first I, too, thought engine oil from front seal.
So be sure to check all around the underside of the PS pump to make sure
it's not leaking at one of the many seals.
