    Default 2.2 direct oil leak

    hi chaps my 54 plate 2.2 direct has an oil leak, oil is all down the offside side of the engine any ideas on where it could be coming from is there any weak points? there seems to be a water housing at the top of the engine and thats clean but everything from there down is covered in oil

    check your oil filter housing, sometimes the rubber seal on the lid needs replaced

    Think theres a gasket on the timing chain area could be coming from there.

    thanks for that fella, was hopping it would be an easy fix, ill have to do some research to see how difficult it will be to check behind the timing chain and see if i can see anything
