I hope someone can offer advice on my non - turbo 2001 V70 oil leak.

It is trickling out at a fair rate off the rear corner of the sump nearest the belts.

The whole underside of the car is covered in oil and also the rear window (slipstream)

There is no oil anywhere on the belts - just a little dry dust.

There has been a slight squeal when starting just for a second recently but I don't know if there is a connection.

There is healthy suction at the oil filler (rubber glove test) and I have had the sump off and replaced oil cooler seals.

Leak is coming from higher than the sump joint and takes about 10 seconds to start running off the sump.

Any suggestions anyone?

I suggest you post in the AWD and FWD section under:

V70 & V70 XC & XC70 section (Discussion area for the second generation Volvo V70 and V70 XC & XC70 produced from 2000 to 2007)......more people will see your post!

Yes, front crank seal or one of the front cam seals. Take the timing belt cover off and you'll probably see one of those seals popped out.
