I recently got to the core of my oil leak. Check the oil pressure switch (connector topside of oil filter housing, visible from front of engine bay).
My ABF was losing oil rapidly and oil was all over the underside of the car/engine. Mine now dry as a bone!
Not sure if its a common prob but worth a look. The leak caused other problems to occur as oil got into other connections so its worth sorting quickly. Hope that helps.


ok when the car was at the garage getting sorted ive been told i need a auxiliary shaft is there anyware online i could get 1 and how much would seat want? thx
