Brought a 2012 antara 2.2D se
Had it serviced and the mechanic notice oil in the water reservoir so thought it could be the oil cooler leaking into the water the oil level hasn't dropped at all but today the DPF light came on there is no water in the oil so thinking not head gasket apart from thinking the idiot I got the car off might have put some oil in the water by mistake does anyone have any ideas
