Oil Leak - Breather Pipe?
Have had my vehicle in for a health check approx 3 wks ago. Amongst several other things 1 thing that was highlighted was a 'slight' oil leak. I was told it was nothing to worry about and was coming from one of the breather pipes (I drive a 2002 156, 2.4JTD). Just been on a long journey and upon my return noticed a reasonable deposit of oil on the ground. (approx 5cm x 5cm).
It was black and did look/feel like engine oil. My level on the dipstick has not moved. Any ideas?? I did have a gearbox oil leak a while back but had the box out and the seals etc replaced. Should I worry do you think or just get on with it?? Is there any way to establish if it is engine or gearbox oil?
The oil always drips from the same point right at the bottom of the engine?
