    Question Vectra 1.9: Slow oil leak - Pics

    Anyone have any idea where this leak would be coming from?
    The filter cap seems tight enough.

    Very hard to tell without wider shot photos, what are you looking at in the photos?

    Looks like some coming out of the drain pipe on the filter housing, but the last pic appears to show the source of the leak being at the rear of the filter housing too.

    Oil filter housing and the back of the engine.

    I know, confusing isn't it. Just hoping someone may have come across a similar leak themselves :/
