Hi.
Oil leak? Couid be coming from anywhere..
Best to clean it off and see if its running down
If its internal ..worst case its a gearbox out job.
There is some snake oils out there that will slow down or stop leaks. (Wyn's)
Oil?
Any oil is better than no oil
If its loosing it. Maybe euroclownparts qx oil is your best bet as its cheap and meets the cars needs.
Iwouidnt bother with out like castrol until the leaks sorted.
