Hey guys as above, I've found an increasing amount of oil drips on my driveway. I've inspected the headgasket, rock cover and it seems to be ok.

There is oil all over the left side of an ED engine especially under the front part of the inlet manifold, front of oilpan and front lower section of engine.

Is anyone able to officially diagnose this?

How much to fix or can i do it myself?

Its sounds like either the sump gasket or the timing case seal.

yeah, if its the sumpgasket, tighten ALL the bolts underneath ..

If its the front main seal, you will need to remove the harmonic balancer

if its the left side under the manifold then i would say the oil pressure switch is leaking as they do tend to go on the i6.

while it's running is it dripping oil?
