Hello and Welcome -

My name is MIKE.. Im happy to help you with your question. Im sorry to see you have had a wait.

Before we progress - I need to know all / exactly what you have done / tried so far... so if you can explain that for me please..

There can be many causes of a leak per se... - how bad is the leak... and whereabouts on the engine is it coming from... as in , area.. ie, top / bottom - side...etc...?

Too - have you definately identified it as engine oil ? On diesels , diesel can be easily be mistaken as it gets dirty on the outside of an oily engine ...?

When I receive your reply , I will get back to you asap thereafter -

Best Rgds, MIKE.....................................
