    Did my sump the other day, now found out it's leaking oil from rocker gasket and another small half moon type seal near camshaft! Wikid , the joys of old cars!

    Haha s33nyboy12! Luckily i've got a good mate who works at kwik-fit so has access to ramps and all tools needed.

    He did a free oil change the other day with new oil filter (also using the best mobil 5w30 fully synthetic) for free, then told me the sump plug wasn't tightening. He's only charging me £30 to replace the full sump and put fresh oil in again even though he only did the other day haha!

    But yes, the joys of constantly maintaining the "well-aged" cars :P

    It is silly low on 17's but it's not that, the threads on the sump for the dump plug are shagged :/ just got a standard replacement on the way for now but going to upgrade to a hybrid shallow sump further down the line lol

    you want to be careful with those sumps.I've heard they can causes oil starvation depending on driving style.I'd recommend a standard sump whit with a full undertray.would deffy do the job
