Actually, the rubber valve cover gasket, which was replaced about a year 
ago, IS leaking; the leak is small however.  Lifetime part my arse!  
That's just another dealer ploy to get you to buy one...

ME TOO!  Hell, it's only got 110k on it.  Must be a leak somewhere; I 
haven't seen any smoke out of the exhaust.

I guess this is my payback for meticulously maintaining my car...... ;-/  I 
just spent $700 on the suspension system to "tune" it and the shimmy at 
speed is STILL there...barely, but it's still there.  Additionally, I now 
find that it's going to cost in excess of $1000 to get my A/C back 

Am I driving a 90 or a 928....??
