This is a cheeky request I currently have an oil leak ,probably the sump gasket, and was wondering if any one on the forum in west yorkshire has access to a ramp or a pit who would be kind enough to let me get under the car to try and find this possible leak

Evening

I know there is a zed shed not far from Lincoln with ramps and a pit- is that too far to travel?

I think there is a weekend coming up on 2nd July

Drive it up a couple of pieces of 6x2 or even 4 off 4x2 timber on a couple of bricks - just so you can release the belly pan screws and get your head underneath. ( Suggest you also block the car on the jacking points)
Could be dripping down from the Oil fiter / oil cooler housing gaskets on LH side
Sure its not the Cam cover gasket leaking and running down the rh side of the engine maybe.
