well theres really little i can tell you.
go underneath and try to see where its leaking oil and where its blowing.
oilcould be from many areas.check the obvious like the filter is tight also the sumplug

If your exhaust is blowing are you sure it's not just a water and carbon mix that'll come out of the exhaust? (I know it's a long shot but maybe )

Alternately if you've hit something (like a speedbump) you may have smashed your exhaust and hit the sump at the same time....but I hope not

i take it a broken sump and new exhurst is going to be costly?
I cant recall hiting anything recently or even ever in my punto!

Badger in my Citroen AX caused some damage mind!

If sump is bost, what is the rought cost of new one?
