Multiple Oil Leaks and oil level dropping

Hi guys,

Serious problem with my dads Civic. Went to change the oil and filter this weekend for him and spotted loads of leaks. We noticed something wasnt right when the low oil warning came up a couple of months ago, but since it has been loosing oil at a high rate, doesnt appear to be burning it however. The previous year no problems at all.

Last year when I changed it's oil, the engine was bone dry, looked brand new.

It appears to be leaking around the rocker cover, spool solenoid gasket and an odd leak on the bottom of the bell housing (crankshaft bearing?).

I first thought it would be the pcv valve causing this, but it's working fine when tested.

The car itself is a 2013 1.8 with 45k miles and driven by a typical 60 year old.

This cant be right surely? My mk8 with the same engine is bone dry. Does anyone have any idea on the cause of all this?

Hmm; Are they each individual leaks? It'd be best to start by cleaning up what's there and confirm that there are multiple individual leaks.

Unfortuently they are individual leaks

It's booked in at our local now, it's a bit beyond what we can do
