    confused bit of help please

    i have a bit of a problem with my signum, its a 2.0 dti and yesterday had the service light come on and the car die, luckily it happened feet from my house. on opening the engine bay this is what i found, it is the very highest seal on the enginge. there is a bead of oil pretty much all the way round the seal with everything lower in the engine coated in oil. the car has not been overheating and i am unable to say wether it has been down on power since i have only owned the car for 6 weeks so the car has acted as i have always known it. any help with a diagnosis and/or repair information will be more than welcome
    thankyou, aaron

    Sounds like a blown gasket.

    i have circled the part with red, it is the first joint from the top of the engine casing.

    have been told by a friend it may just be the rocker cover gasket in which case it willmean simply changing and topping oil up. but if anyone may have any different theories i am all ears
