    Default mira 2006 engine oil leaks

    i bought a mira 2006 2 days back body wise original and engine wise silent but i saw engine oil leaks from the head (i thought its head cuz i dont know about cars its my first car) which is beneath the filter before i buy i checked from a dealer and he says its not a big issue and i bought it due to some activities i still cant use it and it is parked for service and polishing. i only wanna know is it a major issue or not and where i can check to resolve the problem but it is a very smooth and silent car and outstanding road grip. please reply fast i am really thankful.

    Its better get it checked to any known mechanic to isolate the leakage problem,because it could be a loosed or damaged tappet cover packing /stuck PCV valve / leaky breather pipe fittings / defective oil filler cap packing / engine back compression,etc............
    Never loose hope in life,every step gives u something.

    Seems like the leak is from the tappet cover. It probably needs a new rubber gasket.
    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
