Oil Leak from 4wd front end rubbers


HI, so i purchaseda 2005 xtrail that had roadworthy, however when i was living with a friend who is mechanic noticed an oil leak from both front end 4wd rubbers(it looks like they are crackesd), it doesnt leak much but he said i might not be able to pass roadworthy and he also said that it didnt come in the 2 months i drove the car
i also found a rego that was done in september but it only said oil leak, not what oil leak
what do u guys think, is it a serious problem or i could get away with it since i bought the car for 4000 and an estimate to get it fixed was like 2500-3000

hope you understood that and TIA

Re:


Lots of simple things can cause an oil leak, loose parts (it does happen), but usually old seals, most of which are cheap.

Your description of 'rubbers' is not helpful as most if the engine's seals are made from rubbery looking materials.

Take it to a mech before the roadworthy is needed and ask them to tell see what the cost and effort might be. Once repaired you can ask the mech you choose to do the roadworthy with less problem or worry they will find something else. Best not to make it a rush and worry about the expense when it is unlikely to be a big deal.

Leaks will impact fuel consumption as well as require oil, and the QR25DE only has 3.9L of oil so you don't want it running low.
