Alfa 156 2.4 JTD

Oil leak 156 JTD 2.4

Hi all,

I recently had an oil leak which I thought was coming from the the oil filter, the seal around it looked quite oily. Anyway it was due a service so I waited and had it done at the dealer at the same time as an MOT.

The dealer said it was oily around the oil filter and told me that the leak should not happen any more (few drops on the ground)

However a couple of days later I am still getting a couple of drops (looks less than before) Could this just be residual oil left over?

Or is the leak still there. I cant see where it was coming from and the rocker gasket was changed 2 years ago.

Any ideas?

Yeah it can be. That alloy piece underneath the filter can really catch a fair bit of oil if the filter leaks (or during an oil change). get a bit of rag all round it and you'll get most of it.

Obviously if it KEEPS doing it then keep an eye on the dipstick level and get it looked at.
