Oil leak on a clio, oil on end of oil filter casing, but coming from slightly higher, if I wipe it off it reappears around every 50 + miles, not losing much oil, any ideas? Clio is a 1.2 dynamique 2001

oil not fripping onto floor and not losing coolant

You need some dye in the system to determine where the exact leak is at. Add it in the system and watch for the color.

Thanks for that, I got a mechanic coming to look at it thursday, any idea roughly where the leak could be coming from? It doesnt lose coolant and I have to top oil up around every 300 miles (only around 1/4 litre if that) but oil never leaves drips on floor just on end of oil filter casing, but the oil is higher than that.
