Hi can anyone suggest how I could fix this little Oil leak? If someone could direct me to a link that has had the same prob that would be great.
A step by step diagram would be perfect as I do not know much about my gem (YET!)! It doesn't seem like it would be very hard to fix&clean.

The pics make it hard to tell where the leak is coming from.
I would clean the area, then look for where its coming from. Then you can go about fixing it because then you will know whether you need a seal, a sealer, a o-ring or a gasket.

Thanks Turbone cleaned it and as of yet can't seem to see the leak. Excellent it must be a real slow leak!

Little leaks are pretty much par for the course. Keep after them.

Leak? :confused:

You call that a leak? :confused: :confused:

That doesn't look like a leak to me!
How may Quarts of oil do you add per week? :lol:

That looks like an extremely slow dribble to me.

I recycle my oil from the pan on the floor of my garage :banghead:

I go through about a quart a week with my Sub....you get used to the smell and the smoke can be fun at times! Like I said before..I was told by a wise Subaru mechanic...a leaky Subaru is NOT a rusty Subaru:brow: BTW..I am hooked on this forum too!
