im sure it wont be that expensive just need to find out whats causing the leak

also if its engine oil, how much is left in the actual engine? didnt drain out and youve been driving with it like that?

datsuns are ok, just bought me a GTR so cant say i dont like em :lol:

Try and clean as much of the oil off the engine as possible then run it and see if you can see any visible leaks etc. You may be able to trace it. Remember the oil leak will come from the highest patch unless of course its being flicked about by moving parts i.e. drive shafts etc.

Smell the oil and see if you can tell if it is gearbox or engine or diff oil, that way you can narrow your search down quite alot.
