1.4 8V Oil Leak from Rocker / Head Gasket / Oil Seal?

Hi All

1.4 8V Engine at 90K mileage now. Noticed that my engine oil was dropping in levels of about 1cm on the dip stick every two weeks or so.

Anyone can help to confirm if the attached pictures shows oil leak around the rocker, oil seal or head gasket area or its just dirt building up?

Is it okay for me to use dish soap to wash up that area? Also, will it be fine for our 1.4 8V to be used with STP Engine Stop Leak additive?

Regards

Hmm strange. It seems like the attached pictures are vertically inverted.

Seems like you have a leak from the rocker cover.

Don't use any of these leak stop products. Just make sure the leak it's from there and replace the seal... easy job.

Thanks cmosfxx.

I'm thinking of doing a cleanup around that area and continue to monitor to be sure. Is dish washing soap okay for that area?
