I have just checked the oil sump and I see oil stain leaks start on the bottom of the sump and seaping onto the head of the sump bolt.

The bolt is very tight so not loose.

What would be the cause of this oil stain/leak on the sump?


Help?

The compression washer needs replacing. You can get them from Nissan.

Usually it's because someone is too cheap to replace it when they change the oil. It gets squashed to buggery when the person tightens the sump plug even more to compensate for the very flat washer...

That business name seems to get mentioned on here a bit for some reason...

I always change the washer when I change the oil. Unfortunately you'll lose your oil if you want to change the washer so obviously you'll need to wait until then :(

Thanks Dronus.

I received my compression washer from the dealer.

It seems like it has already been compressed in the mail...

Have a look at these photos and let me know if this has been damaged...?

It has been a tad squished but should be ok.
When it gets compressed when you do the sump plug up it goes really flat..
Put the flat side out, you'll see when you screw it onto the plug.

The second to last photo shoes the flat side.
I don't think it really matters but it goes on easier one way.
