Why is my Toyota Levin leaking oil?

My 1999 Toyota Levin AE111 appears to be leaking oil. Recently I put in a new gasket. It looks like the oil is coming out the right hand side and collecting on top of the gearbox. I'm at a loss.

Any ideas?

Is my Ford Focus diesel too cold?

I have a 2009 Ford Focus diesel. The engine malfunction light came on twice today on way to work. It cut out, I lost power steering and the windows would not work either. The automobile is now parked but it is starting up for me now and the warning light has gone off and all seems fine. What could be the problem please? It is a very cold day here too, maybe the automobile was cold?

Many thanks, Lucy
