In my 98 Metro 3 cyl 5 speed I changed the timing belt and continued to have a oil leak in the area around the oil pump. After several remove and reinstall procedures of the front plate that houses the oil pump I realized one of the alighnment pins on either side of the crankshaft ( fits into block )was missing. Installed new alighnment pin and reinstalled front plate and the oil leak has vanished.
