2000 e36 BMW 316i Compact Oil Leak

Hi, I seem to have a Oil leak coming from the back of the engine but, it's not coming out of the rocker cover gasket or the cyclinder head gasket. Any suggestions?

maybe its your crank shaft seal, means your gearbox out and clutch off to get to tho. get the car up on a ramp and take a look. might even be the sump gasket, or a simple job like a sump plug washer. good luck let us know what is was

Hi, my mate found that a washer was corroded so, he changed that and that has solved the problem
