Few Oill Spots on Drive
« on: 17 July 2012, 17:40 »
Just got an X plate 1.8 turbo, runs and drives great, just noticed few spots of oil on drive, what are commen things to look for on these when i get under there later? Hopefully nothing to worry about! drip seems to be at the back rather than front near oil filter?

Thought i had got lucky as oil was exactly where you said but unfortunatly theres a tiny crack in front of it! Plus also cracked the headlight and stone chipped the front end to fcuk! Bloody council stone chipping everywhere round here at minute so im starting to think saying this MK4 gti is superior to other mk gti's was a bit premature lol! Anyway ive chemical metalled the sump in hope it stops the oil until i get hold of sump if anyone has one give me a shout, my car does not even sit that low!
