I changed my oil on Wednesday and today have noticed a small leak. I can only presume is coming from the sump plug. I used a new ring. Is there anywhere else in that area that can leak oil?

I'm presuming it's a the sump plug so if I remove and re seal im obviously going to loose all my new oil, anyway I can collect and reuse this? New bucket mabe?

I've just had my mail oil seal replaced. It was leaking onto the clutch area and weeping at that side of the engine.

Crawled under the car today and the leaks defiantly from the sump plug. Very unlucky, never had one leak before.

I've slackened it off and being a gas engineer grabbed some PTFE and wrapped the ring :) not the best but hopefully will seal it!
