    Anyone help I had my oil pick up replaced as had the dreaded oil pressure warning light and ever since I've had this oil leak when car is running, I get a oil build up just above sump on front of block on the lip which in time fills upp and runs down from of sump, I replaced oil filter housing gasket and oil cooler gasket but still no joy the oil is defo coming from near oil filter housing and it's not above it it anything ?? Confused and very frustrated anyone have a idea what it could be as don't want to keep throwing money at it hoping somebody knows where oil is coming from????

    Nag thought that but it's not as it's coming from above and building up on ledge above where sump bolts bolt up onto right by oil filter housing
