    Exclamation z20let oil leak

    hi people , little problem

    had my zaf gsi about 3-4 weeks now and its came up twice with the check oil on the computer

    so ive topped it up twice now , starting to do my head in , the guy i got it off told me it was the rocker cover gasket leaking , supposed to be a commont fault ?

    anyways ive got one of them from vaux waiting to be fitted but now i think it is more than this


    ive had it parked up in my garage for a week now unused , so when ive pulled it out the garage today there a big patch of oil on the floor drivers side front


    anyone of the aoc shed any light as to what it could be , common leaks/faults etc would be much apreciated


    jeff

    is your oil filter tight enough, take driver wheel off and you will see the filter.. it should tight so that it can not be release using the hands
