2003 Land Rover Freelander 2.0 TD4 Engine oil level rising, no drop in coolant


Problem added: Oct 5, 2013 (6 years ago)
My oil level keeps rising. I drained about 200ml off last night but back up about an inch over full. Coolant level has not dropped and oil was not lumpy, but may be a bit thin (diesel mixed ?)

Yeah.leaking injector.
oh,and do not drive it!
these can end up eating their own oil!
It'll rev to fuul chat and nothing you can do will stop the engine!
well,short of stalling it,if your lucky.
throttle/key will do nothing to stop it.
though it's kind of interesting,for the bystander,to see the look of absolute helplessness on the drivers face as the engine reves to destruction.
and yes,Iv'e seen it happen a cpuple of times.
good luck!
