Hi all,
I have an oil leak that seems to come from above the oil filter.... I've had a few mechanics look at it but none can say where exactly it's coming from. It's guess work and fairly hard to get to... Anyone have an idea before I start spending money???

Cheers,
Dutchy

Mate, theres not much above the oil filter besides for head gasket, inlet manifold and rocker cover.

Id guess rocker cover without having a look. but it could also be head gasket.

Tappet cover leak

Just happened to me, it was the rear of the tappet cover gasket. I thought it was the oil filter and the leak got worse and the oil ran down at the rear of the motor then I thought it was the rear oil seal. Fixed tappet cover gasket... all fixed...whew!:)

Regards
Danny

Tappet cover gasket... Sound like it might be that. Head gasket? Hope not! Will have it checked! Nissan Blackburn said: "we'll have to pull everything apart, have a look and let you know...." I don't think so...
