Re: Is Oil leak deadly
One of the most common places for an oil leak is the cam cover gasket. This is easy and cheap to replace. £20 plus half hour labour, or you can change it yourself easy enough.
The other place it could be leaking from is the oil seal that goes around the outside of the cam variator.
This will require removal of the cambelt, and inlet camshaft to replace, but if the oil has contaminated the belt it will need changing anyway.
