RE: Leaking Head Gasket


The pool of oil is most probably from the rocker / valve cover gasket, seen this a few times on the several of the I5 engines that have graced my driveway.

    Hmm, German tuner friend told me it was an ASAP job.  Small leaks become
major in days he said and then the engine explodes.  Over dramatic in my
opinion.  I have seen many a Volvo 240DL with leaking head gaskets and they
go forever.  I actually popped my head under the hood of a painter's 240DL
which has a 6 cylinder VW/Audi diesel engine, the intake manifold had a pool
of oil resting on it.  Car ran fine.  $75 for a gasket kit for my engine
from TPC, maybe after Christmas.
