    As above - otherwise have you hit speed hump hard? If so check oil cooler pipe as I had similar oil leak when cross bar cut hose.

    thermometer does not work

    I had a curious problem recently which I believe is related to temperature sensor. On cold start the engine would be hard to start (flooded) and then misfire badly once eventually started. After a mile it suddenly clears itself and everything fine for rest of journey. On one occasion I noted...

    Change of coolant hose of left turbocharger

    It is possible on your back and easier than the one behind the a/c compressor. I recall having to slacken off the alternator and removing air filter box to allow removal of various plastic ducts and pipes in the vicinity of the pipe.
