    Default Oil Leak - Signum 2.8 V6 Turbo

    I was planning on giving my car a service tomorrow. Purchased
    - 6 x Spark Plugs
    - 6l Oil
    - Pollen, Air, Oil and Fuel Filters.
    - Sump Plug Washer

    1st question. Vauxhall dealer gave me a plastic sump plug washer which I wasn't expecting? Is that right? Thought it would be copper..

    2nd question. I popped the car onto an axle stand this evening to check I have all the right tools to complete the job tomorrow and noticed an oil leak on the side of the sump. Now I'm a little worried and don't want to waste an oil change if I've got a problem.

    See attached photos. Arrow indicated location of oil in both, the oil appears to run up the side of the sump as far as I can see without a torch.

    Comments, thoughts appreciated. A little nervous.
