ive got oil splattered all over top of rocker cover, and sides of rocker cover and head, massive puddle next to front left wheel, and coolant leaking from radiator hose at top left looking out as though in the drivers seat.

tell me boys, have i done the head gasket? car has done 235,000 but apparently has already had head gasket changed. engine temps have been fine while driving latley and have never played up in little under 2 years.

Water leak being on the PASSENGER side says its not a head gasket (water galleries are on the driver side) and the oil could be the rocker cover seal, oil sender could be faulty, PCV gasket could be hard, etc etc. clean it up, and look for more reliable sources!

& thanks to henry's p!ss weak rocker cover design they leak pretty well to as a result of not being able to be torqued up properly.

for the oil it sounds like your rocker cover gasket is stuffed, there piss easy to replace somthing like $10 for a new one, just dont to put on generous amounts of gasket goo because yes you cannot tighten em down properly or CRACK! (trust me :wink: ) as for the water, easy enough, replace hose or wrap it up in lots of electrical tape :wink:

oh what are you driving anyway?
