hey all
over the last couple of days ive devoloped a bad oil leak coming from the top right of the engine ,looking from the front towards the windscreen,i thinks its the pressure switch but all the lpg gear is in the way so i cant see it.any other ideas?

if anyone has had the same or similar prob with there 5ltr could you give me a rough guess on what may be the prob and price to fix it.

cheers

It pisses out at a great rate from the smallest crack in a switch. Put it on ramps and get under and have someone start the car, if its the switch it will spray everywhere.

ill check the rocker cover later on.

i degreased it this arvo before taking it get the gearbox flushed and when i got back looked underneath and there was oil everywhere.took it back to gearbox bloke thinking he hadnt tightened something ,but when he got it on the hoist i looked under the car and there was oil everywhere on the passenger side closest to the firewall and i cant think of any seals ,niether could gearbox bloke, that are there so roker cover could be the logical problem.

if so would it just need a tightning or maybe a new cover??

cheers

Yeah they cop the full oil pressure from the pump/filter so id imagine it'd be pretty messy...
