    T5 Oil Leak Location?

    Hi,

    Noticed the other day after pulling out of the drive there was an oil spill on the drive. Checked underneath and in the center of the vehicle and about level with the center of the front wheels there is a manufactured hole where the oil is coming from. Please see attached photo. Checked the main engine area and could not see an noticeable leaks. The engine oil level on the dipstick reads over max.

    The gearbox is an automatic one, could it be fluid from there? How would one check and are there any other areas on the vehicle you would recommend to check?

    Haven't had the vehicle long and if someone could point me in the right direction in tracking this issue down, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    That is to allow condensed oil in the boost air system to drip out as it oozes from the pipe couplings, quite normal as long as it is not excessive.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0. Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec
