Customer Question

Volvo Penta MD2010CBT - we have oil in the coolant side of the engine (white emulsion). Can't see an oil cooler on the engine as this was the thing that we thought that could be leaking - any ideas?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: No much more tell!
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: Engine was difficult to start and then felt down on power. Sump oil is clean and has no water in it.

Good morning, my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

The engine needs to be compression tested and the injector tips inspected for signs of a leaking head gasket. Is that something you can do?

Hi Jason, Thanks for the response. This is Mark Powell based in Dubai. Yes, we can carry out a compression test and we can also pull the injectors (and at the same time have them serviced). I will revert once we have done this.
