I have just notice i have got a oil leak. This only happens when the car is running!!!!
I have clean it up and find the area it is coming from is ontop of the drive shaft next to the oil filter.

It could be that the pipes have corroded, which is known to happen. Unfortunately it can be a bit costly as the pipes are steel and the oil cooler is aluminium, so when the pipes corrode they semi-weld onto the cooler, which otherwise is working fine. For this reason most garages will replace the cooler too. However, there are a few garages who can manage to get the pipes off the cooler no problem, you just need to phone around.
