Default WG CRD dumps oil why

Hey guys any ideas why my new WG CRD piece of crap just dumped all it's engine oil into the cooling system and why it had to do it here at Rainbow Beach with van in tow just as we are heading for home. No warning lights no overheating no misfiring no lack of power. Only my wife noticed as we parked and headed off for morning tea.

Quick answer in case you need help - there is a good jeep mechanic, wrecker somewhere near where you are I've heard.

Engine oil or Auto trans fluid? ATF, cooler 'o' ring in radiator.

I doubt that, I've never heard ANYTHING positive about the Jeep guy at Rainbow beach.
In fact, people I've spoken with who have had direct dealings with him wouldnt ever again.

Sounds like the oil cooler has crapped itself. BTW the only problem area (small niggly issues) in my WG CRD is the Mercedes engine. Great when it is working properly but bloody expensive when something fails.

If you do a search you'll find some info and part numbers, from memory the part is cheaper to buy from Mercedes.

HTH,

Jason
