    oil levels.

    My car seems to be using a fair bit of oil so I thought. I've noticed a few drops on the floor over past two days. Any where on the engine.which is prone to leak has haven't had a chance to look yet. Any help welcome cheers.

    S3?
    I know mine has a slight leak from the right rear corner of the rocker cover... common fault,
    Usualy where the "half moon" gasket is,
    If it is there im sure there is a guide on here but most people say get the VVT gasket too. I think people have took to aplying a little of the sump sealant when fitting the new gasket to be sure it will seal.

    I ask questions because i change my mind so much. If i ask questions you have already covered... just leave it be?
