Hi,

I have an oil leak for so long now and its annoying that I have to top it up so frequently.

Well, a while ago, I cleaned the whole engine to make sure no oil was there and then ran it, and checked it. I remember seeing oil coming from the bottom of engine/gearbox, where they attach together:



Anyway, I have just checked now, took the above picture, and its covered in it, its even higher up but am still sure its coming from where I said (Also be seen in the picture)

Is there a gasket in between here and will this leak be difficult to fix, thats if its where it is coming from.

Thanks

Edit: As you can see, the image was taking from looking underther car from the front, you can see the front of the exhaust and the part in question.
