Hi all so a few weeks ago I bought myself a 2010 forester diesel. Lovely car and so comfortable. But here's the main issue. She likes to wee oil. And I mean everywhere. It seems to be coming from between the block and gearbox. Now I know that the petrol boxer engines had problems with the oil separator plate leaking but does anyone know if the diesel boxer does? Any help or thoughts appreciated. Pete.

I've no experience of Boxer diesels, but my first Legacy had a big oil leak from the rear crankshaft seal @ about 105K miles

May the Foz be with you....
