dip stick oil leak

Hi folks, hope you can help again pls?
My Marea 1.9 JTD has a slight oil leak from what appears to be the base of the dip stick pipe, where it joins the block. ( theres none coming up the pipe and out the dipstick ). Has anyone experienced this and what is likely cause, solution. I change the oil and flush regularly, but dont know history, so it could be due to blocked breathers - where are they and can they be cleaned or maybe its due to corrosion ? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks Peter

Its prob the o-ring at the bottom of the tube.It seals the tube to the block only one bolt holding it in place and then pull it out just get an o-ring that fits the tube bit of sealant and bobs your uncle fannys your aunt and slim dick is your uncles brother job done

Re: dip stick oil leak

Hi, Was that the cause? I've got the same thing in my 1.9 Doblo. I'll try and change the o-ring tomorrow and see if that's the issue.

Cheers
