Customer Question

hi I have a nissan micra 1.5 dci 2004 it has a Renault engine.
when driving a clear- what smells like a oil vapour, mists the wind screen, either with the heater on or off. no smoke coming from anywhere. I have noticed that I am having to top up with oil regularly in the last 2 months .
I have checked for oil drips in engine bay and floor and found none other than me.
I have noticed that the hose at front of the car is covered in oil as is the alternator.
Any ideas please.
