how do you know they didn't change it??

it could have been changed befor or had a clutch done befor and the flywheel to crank bolts might have been over tightend causeing it to leak no matter how many time you change the seal.




f**k i hate it when people bring out the dodgy lable befor they even know what happend

Good choice on car, pitty about the oil leak. You should atleast have gotten 30 days warranty, where they have to fix that stuff up. Unfortunatly for me I bought mine direct from Ford where they had dodgied the head up (major over tightening) to stop the water leaking from it. Still I love the car to bits :D

I don't think you get a warranty if the car is modified do you? exhaust counts <rolls eyes>
