    Diesel leakage

    יש לי טרקטור ניו הולנד TN85FA, ויש דליפת דיזל מתחת, ממש מול ההגה. הסולר ממשיך לדלוף, והיום בעבודה, ללא תקרית ספציפית, הוא המשיך לדלוף. בגלל הגנת המרכב, אני לא יכול לקבוע מאיפה זה מגיע. אם מישהו יכול להגיד לי מאיפה זה עלול לדלף, למה זה קורה ואיך לתקן את זה, זה יעזור מאוד. תודה.
