    had a bit of an oil leak past few days and around the oil filler on the rocker cover there is a bit of oil so I was thinking perished O ring. just got a torch in there with the engine cover off and there is oil all over the back of the engine and all over everything underneath it. it's used approx 750ml in 10 days so its worse than it looks. any ideas chaps?

    possibly as i've just gone and had another look and the front bolts for the inlet manifold are fine but the back two are covered and dripping in oil.

    Check cam chain tensioner gasket & half moon too, and replace them anyway if you have the rocker cover off to do that gasket.
