Name isXXXXX goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

If you are dripping oil from the front end of the engine then the most common issue is first the main crankshaft seal then the Cam seals .
If you see oil coming from the front.

If this is the case and the timing belt is contaminated from engine oil then this must be replaced , remove the timing belt cover and inspect .

Other possible location for oil at the front is the front half of the oil pan gasket leak .

Need further assistance then please get back to me .

If it is one of the seals you suggested what would the repair scenario be, that is how big a repair job is it?

Hi Ian .

This would be a 3.5 hr job X the shop hr rate so if its 50 pounds then this will be 175 quid.
plus parts .
Have the timing cover removed first to be sure this is in fact the problem with the crank seals .
