Tune-up / chasing oil leaks
Hello everybody, I am trying to get my 220d back into daily driver condition. its a pretty good running car but it has its issues. im hoping a few of you can help me with these issues.
fist off it has a pretty bad oil leak. i have cleaned it and had it on stand multiple times but it doesn't leak too bad when im just idling. its after my 25 mile commute and i park it that an hour later when i come out to check on it that there is a puddle of oil on the drivers side. i have also noticed a couple time a spray pattern of oil on the front passenger side. i replaced the oil pan gasket as i thought that could be part of the problem but it doesn't seem to have helped.
any other trouble spots to check on the front end. anything that would spray oil on the passenger side?
also, the engine seems to run a bit rough, i'm new to diesel engines and it doesn't seem sound too bad but i thought while i am working on the car i would do a tune up. any suggestions on how and what i tune up?
thanks for any help and suggestions.
