You will need to check all the pipes, the fuel injectors and diesel pump.

I've had 2 cars where the sump has corroded leading to oil leaks. Be careful how you investigate this as on both occasions I picked at the rust and ended with a far worse oil leak. If you do check then I suggest having an oil pan at the ready. On the plus side, sumps are usually easy to change (not on my wifes Fiat 500 unfortunately for me!)
