    Default Oil leaking from somewhere.

    I've just got an 04 vectra, it's a bit of a high miler at 127,000 ( motorway) but it's been fully serviced. However today Ive seen some oil underneath the car, not a lot but it's stained the front right of the underside of the car it looks like it's directly under the engine, what could this be. I'm really worried now and feel I may have purchased a dud. Any suggestions?

    yep, get it to a garage and get the undertray off.. that'll give you a very good look at the underneath of the engine and the location of the leak..From there we can tell you what's involved

    I've had similar situation on a couple of cars with the undertrays on - oil seemingly leaking from the engine. In both cases checking it showed that is was just a garages messy oil change that had let the oil run onto the undertray - worth checking for peace of mind.
