    Got up bright and early this morning to blitz under the bonnet to remove all the **** and gunk and came across an oil patch, The car has full service history, had the waterpump and cambelt changed 7,000 miles ago. It seems to be coming from the right hand side of the engine :( Any ideas?

    Oil patch on the floor or on the engine? Right hand side would suggest gearbox seals or crank shaft seal.
