    Sump Gasket

    Just after leaving my GSI into vauxhall to get her checked over. For the past week i was getting a burning smell through the heaters every now and again. After them investigating they found the their was a slight oil leak from the sump gasket. Is this an easy enough job to do? Thankfully the car still has warranty left so im not out of pocket. Has anyonwe else had a problem like this?

    Ive bin trying to get to the bottom of the same problem for about 2 months! A burnt oily smell! I thought it was a choked breather hose. Never checked the sump gasket!

    Another place to check is the breather that goes into the block. The one that comes out of the front passenger side of the head and down the way...

    Bit fiddly to change but does cause problems.

    My turbo had what looked like a sump gasket leak but it turned out to be the oil feed to the turbo
