hi i drive my car for most of yesterday but today i started it up and was just sitting there running for about 20 mins and loads of oil started coming out from the bottom
iv look around and it seems to of came from the dip stick, would this be because too much oil
its hard to see because its dark but its all down the back of engine towards the driver side
any ideas where it could be coming from or why it might of happend
also it has sort of stopped coming out now, its lost quite a bit but the oil light ent on

So might I suggest posting in the Mk4 section, rather than the Mk5.
