    Default While the Vectra's off the road I've borrowed...

    ...the mother in laws pug 206cc, and quite frankly it doesn't fit. When it was designed they obviously only had midgets in mind coz at 6'4" it certainly doesn't fit me.

    But aside from that little inconvenience, it has an oil leak, arrowed in the picture.

    Knowing sweet fa about this car, can anyone tell me what it is and how to cure???

    I'm guessing it's the oil filter lid but I've only ever had cars with spin on canister types, so...guessing...

    I'd go for oil filter cap aswell. Try torquing it up. It might be the rubber seal inside has folded tho. Nothing an oil/filter change wouldn't sort

    it is the oil filter. check that the seal has not been pinched when they changed the filter.

    hope it helps.

    Thanks guys!

    Will I have to drain the oil before removing the cap and checking the seal?

    Leave the car standing aslong as possible and then you can just undo it (32mm I think)

    You will get some oil that will leak from it so expect to get dirty.

    Probably better off getting the oil and filter replaced.
