    Default small oil leak on vectra c sri

    i seem to have a small leak coming from between the bottom pulley and the sump , when i stick my finger up there it comes out with wet oil on it lol , its not bad it dont leave anything on the drive but it gets to running down that plastic cover which fastens to what looks like a part of the chassis , its an 07 plate sri 1.8 vvt with 42000 on the clock , does it sound like the crank seal or is there something else i should be looking for ...........

    Sounds like the crankshaft oil seal to me. I would wait and do this as part of a timing belt change if it's not dripping on your drive. You can get oil additives to stop seals leaking but haven't used any and don't know if they work. HTH
