(another topic for help lol) anyhow recently where my girl has her car parked up there seems to be a collection oil drippings from beneath the engine.. a month ago the alternator belt snapped and the car overheated.. the belt was fixed and the car has been running fine since but just wondered if this could have been a factor... any other likely sources to check?

Check your sump isnt leaking, occasional cases of corroding and cracking of sump has been known

The heat up that the engine suffered may have caused a leak. Wash the engine down, that will give you a chance of finding the source.
