    The rocker cover is the bit in your first pic that houses the yellow coloured plug where you top up the oil.

    Interested in this thread as my 04 reg 2.0 DTI that i got this week also has a leak around that area......my first suspect was the rocker cover gasket,but i have not as yet renewed the gasket. I have changed them on my previous car (Vectra B with X18XE engine), should be fairly easy to change on these engines if neccesary

    What i did do was to spray the oily areas with gunk, let it soak for a bit then hose it off. Have done around 50 miles since & havent seen any leaks so far.

    Possible that someone spilt oil when filling it & didnt wipe it all off?

    Looking at the fact that there is oil on the black plastic engine cover in front of the oil filler cap and over most of the top of the engine around the oil filler cap, this might (if you are lucky) just be the result of an oil top-up that missed the hole and has not been properly cleaned up.

    Any oil that misses the oil filler hole tends to runs off towards the front of the engine and under the black cover because the oil filler hole sits in a recess except at the front where it sits flush - so this is where the oil runs off.

    Take the black plastic cover off the top of the engine and see if this is a possibility. Wipe away all of the oil that you can find then keep an eye on it to see if more appears in which case you may well have a leak. Also keep an eye on your oil level as this may get low if you do have a leak.

    I have cleaned the whole area with Carb cleaner. So I will spot any new oil that may leak out. I will keep watch over the next few weeks.

    I have been checking the oil levels everyday. They do not seem to change......

    Keep you all posted........if you wish......x
