i am having an engine leak in front of the engine.
i changed the valve cover gasket and that is ok but the leak continues.
oil drips on to the compressor and then on the floor.
is it the front seal???
if so is it a big job to change it?
thanks benzmac your advise really appreciated.

Have you checked to see if maybe the vacuum pump is leaking? It is pretty much located in that area, above the compressor.
Just a guess at what to look at :)

Hope you find it.....and it's cheap!

Use a cleaner on the engine and then steam clean it well. Especially in the area of the Vacuum pump. The above is true, the front cover of the vacuum pump is probably leaking.
