Oil leak from somewhere

Postby ABliss » Fri Jan 05, 2018 4:21 pm

Hi guys,

I noticed an oil leak in the megane. It's leaking down to the engine mount (the gearbox one under the car). Picture shows a bit of wet oil from the engine bay. Under hard acceleration and high revs, I think the oil is spilling out somewhere. Can you guys give me some guidance on where to start looking? Or any common places where leaks occur?

Car in question is a 2004 Megane 1.5 dci with 133k on the clock.

Hi Abliss,
I think you're probably looking at your leak in the picture, just bits from the breather or whatever that is, dropping.
Let us know if you find anything else. (it's the way you drive em !)
