Hi everybody,

Woke up this morning only to find an oil patch about 6 inch square, just of off centre to the left of the engine (passenger side of car - right hand drive mazda). I have a funny feeling it could be the gear box as it feels clunky when i change gear or god for bid, could it be the head gasket. any ideas would be welcome. If you reuire anymore info please do ask.

Cheers all

Thanks for every bodies help on this subject, it would appear that i'm the only person ever to have an oil leak in this area of the car.

Anyway, the problem has been located, its the Near Side drive shaft seal.

Have fun all
