A PS cylinder head leak (the X head plug) is not uncommon and is normally
the result of an installation problem.  This deficient design requires that
these O-rings be very well lubed upon installation, tightening will not help
the problem.  But a cheap part, >$.50, generic O-ring #2-018.  You will be
taken advantage of, if you fall for the cold to hot climate change ploy, or
any other illogical nonsense.
