Right guys and girls.

My car is being purchased by a friend of mine next month, Being a nice person i ideally need to get this resolved.

I have a mk1 FR 1.8T, I checked the oil the other day and it seemd to have gone down since last checked. I topped it up a little and all good.

Looked under the car this evening there is alot of oil around the turbo area, Mainly seems to be down the intercooler pipe. And obviously as a result of this splattered around various areas . Now i need to get this looked at but any rough ideas of what i may be looking at here ?.

Just another thing when i last did a service i noticed some oil dribbling down the oil return pipe into the sump ? maybe the start of something ? .
