nah u wont notice a drop in pressure as it may only be a seep when not running but a slight discharge when driving. just keep an eye on it, but if it is ur stem seals id leave it till maybe the head gasket goes as its an expensive job to have the seals done as its the same job as having the head done!

if its under warranty hassle em heaps but if its a big repair cost they will try to stall you im sure. just keep on them as im sure they knew of the problem when they sold it to you.

OKay just got someone to check the exhaust for me while i started it up. No smoke first start up of the day, but then once it was idling for about 5 minutes it started to smoke a bit.

Checked it and its more like a light grey colour or something and smells like petrol somthing feirce! So i definately cant be oil related then.

It seems it would be running very rich on startup or something. :roll:

Anyone else have any ideas?

Thanks
