Megane oil leak???

Post by jools1010 » 02 Jun 2004, 03:28

Hi all, could someone point me in the direction of finding an oil leak on a 96 P reg 1.4 8v Megane, I can not see were the oil is coming from I think its above the sump although sump plug is wet.
I fitted a new sump plug washer with new oil and in the morning most of it was on the floor, the oil collected just under the radiator??. The sump its self feels dry.??
I have been told that oil leaks are common problems but finding it very hard to find were this oil is comming from.

Have you tried from the oil filter itself? As if not sealed properly they will leak.
