yeah either rear main seal or sump gasket gone, got same problem with my ef, plus among other things lol,

if it rear main seal engine and gearbox gotta come out or even gearbox by itself which is ment to be harder or more time consuming etc.

EA's had those s**t half moon rubber fill ins for the cam journals were ground and they go hard and always leak front and back of the motor...

Cheers,
Tim

Get alot of people thinking rear main when it'd actually rockercover, before you drive it in the morning put you're hand around the back Of the rocker cover and feel for oil.

All dry round the back of the rockercover filthy but dry lol deff rear main seal then its not pissing out oil but maybe a couple of drips a week my old xf ghia had the same prob and it absolutly p****d out like drain all the oil over night.

It hasnt leaked at all today so im thinkin its just sluge melting i dunno iv cleaned it up nice so if it leaks itll build up and ill see it

Rear main leaking slightly seems to be an issue with every car.
