    Default Oil leak

    So according to my MOT tester I have a slight oil leak. He wasn't able to tell me where from though.

    I'm going to borrow my mates ramp and have a look. Any common areas to check first?

    I have noticed its using more oil but I just put that down to the pcv vale needing changing, Haven't found a single drop of oil under the car after its been parked.

    Cheers

    Usual places are rocker cover, oil filter, can chain inspection cover but equally could be from anywhere and it can get flicked around by a driveshaft so you might have to clean it down, do a few miles and look again.
