So I've had a mild oil leak from the turbo area on the right hand side of the engine. Its all very crammed in there and is hard to see, but what I can see is drips of oil when the engine is turned on. I can try get some videos or pictures if this will help but I need to get it fixed ASAP and hoping its a job i can do myself..

hi mate, very fiddly job, but definitely doable, to do at home.

however, it could be things such as turbo seals, oil supply line etc, but also could be something like rocker cover gasket etc, at work with this kind of thing, unless blindingly obvious, we clean it all up, spotlessly then run it and find the leak, before venturing into turbos and turbo parts VERY expensive, find a certain source.

if you do not feel too confident in doing this, i suggest this, go online and buy a UV oil additive and a uv torch, clean all the oil up and then add the additive, drive the car like normal for a couple of days then give it a good inspection with the torch, it will glow where the oil is coming from.

any further questions, ill be happy to help
