    Default Oil Leak

    Can`t Thank TappetPaul Enough For Putting On My Coil-Overs Today

    Great Job M8

    No Knocks/Clanks/Dinks Nothing

    Here Goes...When NSF Was Up On The Jack..Sprung An Oil Leak.Never Seen Any Leak When OFS Was Jacked Up..Looks Like Its Coming From Seal Between Engine/Gearbox...Looks More Like Gearbox Oil Than Engine Oil..So After Coilovers Were Fitted..Took It For A Wee Spin..Then The Oil Leak Stopped..Anbody Any Ideas On This ?


    Cheers Peeps

    Sounds like the drive shaft seal maybe.

    When the suspension was being pulled about the driveshaft could have come out a bit and it leak then on the test drive or when you refitted the suspension it was 'popped' back in fully.

    The leek looked like it was from where the gearbox joins the engine it almost looked like the sump seal it didnt come from where the drive shaft is. Could be wrong with out fully investigating it. Glad it's stopped though after you went for the test run!

    Thanks for all the coffee and smokes bud was good to meet you
