My Puma's getting on a bit now, it's just turned into a teenager and I have now inherited an oil leak!

Is there a common with the Puma engine leaking and if so, anywhere in particular?

I'm not an engine enthusiast but will attempt to clamber under the car this weekend to locate it's origin, but if anyone can point me in the right direction and let me know what they managed to do to fix the cause it would be beneficial.

Thanks to all for your help.

If you can give us an idea of which side of the engine it is leaking from a quick look underneath it may help.

The most common leak is from the cam cover which will run down to the bottom of the engine. May be your starting point.

I had a leak from the oil pressure switch which was fun to diagnose.

Also there is an oil pressure core plug on the cambelt side of the egine low down that tends to undo over a period of time.

Good luck.
