    Default Oil Leak

    My 1.8 Vectra's only done 5k miles and is already dropping oil on the drive - going to dealers tommorow to book in to get fixed - but anyone experience the same problem and know extent of likely work will be ? -

    The oil appears to be coming from the top of the engine (offside) above what appears to be the water pump, coming from behind a plastic cover which looks like it could be the cam belt cover - could it be a cam shaft oil seal leaking. There's not a lot dripping yet, although there is a trail of oil down the side of the engine ending with a large area of the bottom of the engine covered in a greasy mess - all the more obvious due to it been almost new.

    Is yours the VVTi?

    I've had problems with my 1.8 (non-VVTi) with leaks from the rear main oil seal, but as you say that yours is from the top it won't be that so it does sound like the camshart seal to me
