    I would hesitate to call the crank shaft oil seal the front main seal simply because it isn't at the front with a transverse engine but we are probably talking the same thing.

    I would have a good look at the timing cover gasket and crank shaft oil seal, as you mentioned at post 11. I am sure that you have confirmed that what you are seeing is actually engine oil? The level...

    The other possibility is that the engine isn't actually a very good ground, possibly the ground strap is less than perfect?

    Sounds like an intermittent fault that clears before the warning has time to display. Unfortunately you’ll have to wait until something shows or get a fault code reader.
