Is this a common oil leak on the 20XE engine? I noticed mine leaks a small amount from somewhere round this area. According to the Haynes manual it seems fairly simple to remove the distributor, replace the seal and re-assemble as it can only go back in one way. Is it really this simple or do you have to chant a secret mantra whilst performing the oil seal renewal? Any one done this?
Any tips most welcome.
Also as for Castrol Magnatec oil if you use it , which do you use for this engine - 10W/40 or the 15W/40? ( There's a good offer on at my local car parts place )
