Need help with a couple oil leaks.

I have two oil leaks, the first one is leaking through a bolt hole that is around a black metal tube that runs from the from behind the timing cover across the the back towards the transmission and it has rubber lines running from the tube to the oil filter and block. The second one is near where the transmission meets the engine and its coming from between a piece that isn't part of the block or transmission but bolts to both. Also oil leaking from knock sensor, is that possible?

Any ideas on what is leaking?

Clean engine really good then run engine and see where oil is coming from.

Re: Need help with a couple oil leaks.

I already cleaned the engine and can see where its coming from which is in the previous post, what I need to know is what seal is leaking to cause oil to leak in those areas.

Ah the first one I'm a bit confused do you have some sort of aftermarket oil pressure gauge on it or something? Now the second one your saying its not teh block or the tranny but bolts to both. I'm thinking your talking about the slave cylinder. Mine its leaking as well, I have the part but I'm waiting for a good time to tear into it as I am replacing the clutch and flywheel and while I'm in there the slave cylinder.

I'll have to look at my engine bay to see about that bolt hole near the black tube you are talking about. I have no clue about that one yet.

Re: Need help with a couple oil leaks.

Thanks for the reply Rob, here is a picture where the 2 oil leaks appear to be coming from, the bolt hole is the one to left and that is the knock sensor to the right correct? Can oil leak from there?
