; in a 156 V6
Join Date: Apr 2009
My v6 is leaking oil. I got a burning smell as it was dripping down onto the manifold cover. There was no oil there at all before and now there is quite a lot. I had to trailer it home. It's very hard to see exactly where it's coming from because of the slam panel for the bonnet. But to me it looks like it is dripping from the base of the dipstick.
Edit: it seems to be above the dipstick. I think it's possibly from the rocker cover gasket. It's new and has driven for about 400 miles since installation with no leaks. I'm thinking it might be pinched or something?
