Rocker cover gasket

Post by c3nturi0n » Wed Jun 13, 2018 10:35 am

afternoon,

I noticed small patches of oil around both banks and it seems like rocker cover gaskets are caput :roll: ... any idea of how big of a job that is?

And I suppose one follow up questions is, should that me a major concern or perhaps normal wear and tear (with the car on 100K ish now)?


Cheers

If it's just a slight mist of oil and it's not pooling up between the inlets and the heads I wouldn't be worried. Unless it's losing oil over what is specified in the owners manual of course.

Almost every engine I have ever seen has a very small oil seep from the rocker covers.

Best thing to do is to clean it using a degreaser and that will let you see how bad it really is and how long it takes to accumulate.

Thx... that'd be my first point of call.

Has anyone ever done rocker gaskets on V10's? Is it a "common" issue with BUH engines?
