Hi, Im having more problems with my car.

Took it to regal engines just before christmas to have a bolt driled out, whilst there the cleaned th ICV and replaced the head gasket and thermostat. Cars done 141,000.

Anyway, since having it back i have developed an oild leak. I cant find it though. I clean the oil up and run the car for 30mins and no leak. Im going to try and find it again on Saturday.

The oil appears to be running down the wire and dripping off of the TDC sensor.

Has anyone got any ideas where this could be coming from. it doesnt appear to be coming from the crank shaft seal. If it was i thought the leak would be behind the pully. My leak is more to the left.

Any ideas?

Also it seems to have developed a whistle. even in neutral when the engine is revved there is a whistling noise. I thought it could be a vien on the fan that had cracked but its not that.


Thanks for your help

Gah! Did you ever find the source? It looks as though my leak is gathering there also. I've chased it up as far as some moisture from behind the fan pulley.

Could that be possible?!
