    oil leak help

    Hi, today I changed a load of stuff on the car, injector seals, intake manifold gasket, dipstick tube,oil cooler breather elbow and flushed the coolant. Thought I'd finally found my oil leak when I changed the breather elbow which was in bits but when I came to put the bellypan back on noticed oil allover the front end of the engine, anyone any ideas as to what could be causing this leak?

    oil leak help

    Rocker cover gasket! I haven't had my car long. But have come across most of the common faults already. Was told not to bother with after market one and went straight to TPS. Was only £12. Then put a dab of trv sealer in corners.

    Yesterday decided to try and clean the engine up a bit, seems to be coming from the turbo side of the block, no leaks from turbo feeds but its caked wot looks like a pump with a corrugated breather hose directly below the turbo. Can't see whereabouts its coming from tho
