    Default 2.2 16v Petrol leaking oil on side of engine

    hello, hopefully someone here can help me.

    i have a 52 plate vectra c with a 2.2 16v petrol engine and it seems that clean oil is leaking from the engine somewhere, down the side of the ignition module and down.

    somebody has said to me it may be the rocker cover gasket leaking but would like another opinion please.

    heres a few pics ive taken, hope they make sense

    Very common for the Z22SE to leak a little just under the rocker cover to the right of the oil filler cap. It can also happen if you've spilt a little whilst filling it as it drips down under the coil pack and runs out underneat, appearing to come from the top of the engine. Pop the coil pack out and have a look underneath it next to the oil filler cap.

    Have lifted the coil pack up and that is all dry and oil free so can only assume its the rocker cover gasket. Hopefully it shouldn't be too expensive.
    Thanks for your help

    Looks like the rocker cover gasket to me. try tightening the retaining bolts/screws, and cleaning the oil off, then monitor it to see if by some small chance that has cured it. I don't think the gaskets are expensive, but it might just work.
