my appreciation for all of your comments about my earlier thread of intake
manifold and TBI.......however, after closer inspection:
there is no doubt i am leaking oil somewhere engine topside, but after an
engine washing and a few miles of driving and 30 minutes idling, no real
evident leak......so its is minor compared to : : :
a puddle of oil in the driveway (i useually back in, so front-in is a new
position), underneath inspection reveals what looks like a leak from the flange
where the housing that the oil filter connects to connects to the block. what
is this thing?
i would assume my oil pump is accessed after removing the oil pan, from what
chilton says. but my oil filter screws onto a thing that looks like an
artificial heart, and this thing has several blind ports that are capped, and
in positions that i have no idea how any hose or other line could connect to.
the thing is connected to the block by 2 hex screw bolts,. allen wrenches.
anyway, oil is leaking from where this thing connects to the block. so what
gives?? it looks easy to replace this gasket, but its after 9pm and all auto
parts shops are closed now.
any words are appreciated!
