    My car is bleeding

    I had a go at changing to oil on the var today and i noticed that on the bottom sump cover thingy there was a lot of oil. It seems to me that it is coming from the rear of the engine but on that particular corner (drivers side). I was wondering whether anyone has had anything like this on their own car and could offer any help? ive got a 1.7 dti on 67k
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.

    Best off cleaning ot all off then having a look to see where its coming from.

    Had alot of oil in mine, turned out to be the rocker cover gasket had perished just next to the camshaft pulley and leaking down the cambelt area and down the back of the engine, take the cambelt cover off and have a look see if its the same.
