when you say the "head" i presume you mean where the rocker box cover sits if so could be the gasket which sits between the cover and head. plus if it is this its NOT an engine out job



P.S im gonna move this into the Tech part of the Forum.
cheers

Are you female??

If yes i will defo take your number and come have a look..

Regarding the engine it will more than likley be as spellbound says,head gaskets.
Piece of piss to replace,just pop off the spring clip on the heads,replace gasket and spring the clip back on.
Even if its leaking from any oil seals it wont be too bad,certainly not a new engine anyhow.
flywheel oil seal is a common one but thats more towards the gearbox end.
The other possible place would be push rod tube seals,which is between the head and the engine block.
That means heads off to replace seals,still nothing too drastic but a bit more work.
If you do need help im more than willing to help/have a look

It's not leaking, it's marking it's terratory (spelling?).
If it don't leak you haven't got any oil in it
One of my push rod tude is leaking too, got all the stuff to sort it (apart from a clue where to start )
