Good job on the bracket JETaah. Maybe you can give us some details so I can make one for my car. I remember when you've fixed my failing hood insulation using welding wire. Simple but ingenious!

At that mileage you might have wear on injector bores on the cyl head. Worth checking.
Injectors typically last a bit longer but it's not uncommon to see a work injector or two at that miles also.

I'm not familiar with this problem. How does one go about checking this?

If you don't have fuel to oil dillution, don't get in there.
The injectors are fixed on one side, using one bolt. They rock back and forth once being pressed down in their bore.
Over time and miles, the bores wear out. Visual inspection shows sharp and/or worn edges.
As a remedy for that, these bores can be sleeved. I have seen a few cylinder heads with sleeved bores. However, I didn't find any shop locally which would be offering such service. But hey, I don't own a PD and I don't have such a problem...

Does the fuel get in the oil with that problem? Or does the oil get in the fuel?

Fuel gets into oil.
Depending on the wear, oil level rises.
Worst what I have seen is about 3 inches over the MAX mark in a few days.

Wow that's some pretty bad oil dilution.

Fortunately, mine's at least minor if not non-existent. The oil level has never risen noticeably.
