Re: oil leak in punto
The punto's suffer from porous sumps. The metal becomes thin and leaks oil. Although its not a difficult job to change, its a messy job. You have to draain all the oil out first, then remove all the bolts around the sump pan. If you are replacing the sump, its good practice to replace the gasket too.
The sump itself is not too expensive to purchase, and the job itself in a garage, shouldnt take any more than 2 hours.

I assume there is a pin-hole in the line? Easiest way is to find the leak, cut it out, and reconnect with the right size fuel hose (should be 1/4" or 3/8"). Make sure to use small hose clamps to connect the hose
when engine is running there is more pressure on hose you have to have a pin hole in hose. you better replace right away because if you don't and the car over heats you will possibly blow your head gaskets causing water to get into your oil and costing you a small fortune. replace hose right away and make sure you have plenty of engine coolant in your vehicle.
hi this very small hole in the bottom of your gearbox will be the demise of your car, it sounds like the gearbox has seized due to the oil leaking out of the hole, you can try putting gear oil in and seeing if it leaks out of this hole, if it does then the case maybe you need another gearbox, or though you might be lucky if you can repair it, you can purchase a metal filler that will do this if the hole is small enough and re filling the gearbox with oil if this does not work you will need to replace the gear box.
Clean the engine block with a compressor and find out where the oil is coming from. If there is no leak, and motor stays clean, then the oil is being combusted inside the engine, and you should get black smoke from exhaust. In this case it is time to a major repair to the engine.
First thing i have never seen a sealent that would fix a bad head gasget, secound if you got water in the cyl. than most likely there is water in the oil witch over a short period in time will do damage to the vitals in the bottom end. Third for them to tell you that a sealent might fix the leak i would be getting a secound openion.
sounds like your lower gasket is shot, and while under pressure its slowly leaking through a cracked gasket try getting gasket sealent and put on seal crack let it sit for a day or 2 it should obsorb in and fix the gasket that should probably do the trick
