Well, I've already given the go ahead to the shop, so I'm not sure why I'm
asking now. I trust these guys - they are independent.
It's just that I'm not really sure I get what's happening.
I've got a pretty significant oil leak down the back of the engine.
(76k miles btw) The shop says that my cam shaft oil seals are shot, some
where around the cam chain, and that the valve cover gaskets can't keep up
with the pooling of oil, so it's leaking down the side. They say they see
about one of these a week.
Does this sound remotely familiar to any of you?
They are talking new seals, new gaskets, and a new breather hose. While
they are in there, I've agreed to have the spark plugs replaced - they're
almost due anyway.
