Need some help please with my 2005 Vauxhall Combo van Its always leaked a little bit of oil but nothing serious. Yesterday I noticed it had dripped more than usual so I checked the level and topped it up. Later in the day I had to moved it off the drive and found a huge puddle of oil under it! I can see it dripping its thats bad.

Its definitely not the sump as you can see its coming from further up Its coming from the front of the engine somewhere around the turbo area by the looks of things. I'm not too familiar with these engines so I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what could have gone wrong?

Heres a photo to show how much oil it dropped overnight



Thanks

If its from the turbo area then its either the oil seals on the turbo or the send and/or return oil feed pipes to/from the turbo itself
