Stop oil leak in sump Mazda 323 1.6 motor

1st thing I would recommend would be getting the whole engine degreased.then drive vehicle for a couple of days and then recheck where leak is coming from 100percent as it could be running down from rocket cover gasket.
if you pin point the leak is coming from the sump you will need to drain oil and remove sump and clean surface area and resell sump and refit.also replace sump plug gasket while ur going.

How to change the oil

You will need a sump plug removal tool.
On older vehicles, this was just with a wrench.
But it could be a special key, check the plug on the base of the sump.
Take keys from ignition (as you do not want to accidentally start an engine with no oil.
Open the oil filler cap, place a container under the vehicle (could be quite a few litres of oil to come out) and remove the sump plug.
Leave the vehicle to do this for a short while, until it all stops dripping out.
Now you would want to change the oil filter.
These are in different location, but you can get a filter wrench to wrap around to remove.
PRE FILL the new oil filter with clean oil before installing (This stops any air locks when you start the engine after the change)
Hand tighten the new oil filter, they do not need a great deal of torque to screw in place. so generally a good hand tighten is enough.
You may need a new washer for the sump plug (some oil filter kits come with this in the box)
Now that the new filter is on, and the sump plug is back on. Fill the engine with the correct amount and type of oil.
I do not know the exact amount you will need.
But it is better to fill a little at a time, check the dip stick for the correct level.
When you are at the correct level.
Run the engine for a few minutes at IDLE.
Stop the engine and check the oil level again.

You should be all good after this.

Also check again after a few miles, that the sump is not leaking, and that the oil filter is also not leaking.

usually a blocked sump hose.. accessible from the rear lower panel..(power off and plug out 1st).. it has a large jubilee clip and inside is a white filter cage.. when refitting make sure connection is remade correctly. i stress this as the older sumps can be a pain to refit so only attempt if competent else a flood will be at hand when used..failing this then a faulty pressure switch or nic in pressure hose...Thanks
