it's diesel fiesta 1.4 tdci ,

It has had a few minor problems since we bought it
2 months ago the car as been in to 2 garages and none have picked the oil leak apart
from the oil leak it has a hissing coming from the fuel lines that is going to
be replaced under warranty .i contacted fords about this oil  leak and they  are going to
look at it when they do the fuel lines ,i am oblivious to why it’s not been
picked up on the heath checks and the engine mounting are also causing a problem
the car is low mileage the car place we
bought it from is well known they  should
have done a 114 point check on the car before we had it so it was missed there
to .take a look at the pictures and post your options this is a car valued at
£7499 what would do if this was your car .

 

a friend thinks it may be the crank seal or the sump seal if you look at the pictures there is stress cracks in the engine its self look at the arrows .

Sorry to hear about your problem, it must be very annoying on a £7499 car!

 

My initial thoughts are its the sump gasket/ seal, and the "cracks" are just marks/ part of the casting process, these are just opinions and i am more knowlegeable about Mondeo engines,

 

I would insist that it gets seen to, nothing worse than oil dripping onto the drive, know it looks very bad, but its often only when the oil level drops too low that it is a really serious problem, i would keep an eye on the oil level, just in case (and the other fluid levels, sometimes, it looks like an engine oil leak and it is actually something else, like, eg,  the power steering)
