Don't really know how to tell you about where this oil leak is but it seems like it's coming from near the passanger side drive shaft, I have to keep filling the car with oil and it only lasts about 1,500 miles, it's not burning oil as it's not smoking, it passed it's M.O.T first time with no adviseries, it's a 1.4 CL MK1 on a 02 plate, there's no spotting on the drive way or anything like that, when the engine isn't running I wipe over where the oil is, start the car up and leave it running for about 15 minutes but nothing's there, still dry, drive the car round the block a few times, get back and suprise suprise it's got oil all over it again, I've had the rocker cover gasket replaced, had a service on it and everything, no one's picked up on it at all but me, I know it's not gearbox fluid as I've had my mechanic look into it but he can't work out where the oil is coming from, any ideas? I think it might be a drive shaft oil seal or something which are cheap to buy and easy to fit, not sure but don't wanna be spending too much money on it as I'm limited to what I've got hence why I'm driving a 1.4 and not a ST170, lol

It was the drive shaft oil seals and it's burning it, wopps, looks like it's going up for sale :)
