Here we are looking at Diesel engines with leaking injector seals. When the seal eventually wears away it leaks the combustion gases and soot past the seal. In the case of the Mercedes-Benz Vito it leaks it externally of the engine, in this case it is not as bad but can still be a nightmare to get the injectors out to renew the seals. It is kind of like cementing them in. However some manufacturers have the injectors on the inside of the engine and when seals let go the gases and soot leaks into the engine and mixes with the engine oil. This causes the oil pickup to block and oil starvation occurs. The oil pressure warning comes on on your dash and by then usually the damage is done! One example is the Toyota 1kd motor.
