Thanks for all the tips, glad I did this.

Sems like I spoke too soon.

There is oil dripping occassionally from the cars undertray, the only thing I can think of is that there was some oil caught on the tray when draining the old stuff out and its finding its way down under gravity or the sump plug is not tight enough ?

Sump plug wasnt in very tight at all and I have put it back ( with copper crush washer ) a bit tighter than it came out but nowhere near 25NM according to the torque wrench I used. Didnt want to overtighten it.

Anybody else had this scenario ?
