    Angry oil leak

    hello, help required on my 2.2 dti vectra, after washing of leaking oil from the engine to find the leak (now leaking so much it is spilling out the undertray onto the road) i think it is coming from the brake pump and the rocker gasket? does the brake pump require filling with oil when replaced with a new gasket? as its now making a rattling noise after leakin out as i cleaned the surface off before refitting....

    now oiled up the pavement outside the house to, not good!

    Have a good look at the oil pressure switch buddy as that is quite a common failure on DTi's and oil will get everywhere !!!!!!

    thanks for the reply, got the gaskets from the stealers today so should be setting about it on wednesday, i should all being well have a workshop manual by then as i like to torque things, the vac pump has stopped it racket so it must have filled with oil,

    i will be taking a few pictures so i will post them when i get the chance..

    oh boy what a leak! took the whole under tray off and found that the cap on the oil pump was finger tight! got the socket on it and now sorted, not a drop more used in 1500 miles........
