Oil leaking onto exhaust just after the cat

For a couple of days now my cars been smokin from the exhaust side of the engine bay, but I couldn't exactly find were any oil or PS fluid was leaking onto the exaust.

Well today after driving I looked a bit further up just after the cat and sure enough there's a nice big oil leak on the exhaust. Were is this leak most likely coming from and how hard would it be to fix myself????

Re: Oil leaking onto exhaust just after the cat

Is it oil or p/s fluid? I had the same thing mate and it turned out to be the power steering switch on the rack... It was leaking and dripping fluid onto the cat and stinking up like a beehotch... check the switch (60 or so bucks) and see if that fixes it...

Re: Oil leaking onto exhaust just after the cat

Black oil is engine, and red is p/s or gearbox, any idea of colour, and engine oil smells different to p/s or gearbox oil, engine oil doesnt smell as bad, if it really stinks and smokes it is p/s or gearbox oil, as said check the switch is probably all it is, I think mine is gone :(

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
