    Well hopefully it's nothing major then it's not losing hardly any just looks a mess and I don't like leaving things would the turbo feed be an easy enough fix il be taking it to garage anyway but just so I know what to expect,had a nasty accident with a jack years ago and since then I hate going under cars thanks for the reply

    Yes il see what they say in the morning just hope they've done the gasket properly lost confidence after seeing the obvious lack of respect and not being bothered to clean the oil off , think mine worked it's way to the front because my drive is quite a steep slope and we always always park reversed up.

    Check camshaft seals if it leaking at the front, easy to check just pull top timing cover and have a look clean oil of with brake cleaner or similar then check it again for leaks !!!!

    Ok garage been ok about the issues they told me to take car back and they would clean it properly and the wheels I sanded the curbs out and sprayed back myself just couldn't stand to look at them and also I thought I'd tackle the oil myself today with degreaser some machine cleaner and the hose pretty much did the whole engine bay 90% of the oil I've got off but I noticed the injectors into the manifold looked a bit oily didnt want to go wetting this too much but anyone know what would be the safest way to clean this up at home

    Sounds like you need new injector seals, not too big a job.
