    2.0 l oil leak

    I was wondering if there is common oil leak on these motors. I just replaced the valve cover gasket. Looking to be coming from below that on the passage side back corner.

    Back on that side itís the cam chain cover gasket or the vacuum pump seals.

    If itís lower down on the drivers side itís the oil cooler or oil filter housing gasket.

    I am not sure how to post pictures on here yet. But There was oil all over the passenger side of the transmission and the axle cover. But it did look like it all came from the top side

    Vacuum pump gasket or cam chain gasket

    Best approach is to clean the area with warm soapy water and you will be able to see the source.

    vacuum pump I would say for sure . I found the timing cover pretty rock steady unles it has been off before . But if I were going in there I would just do both and check cam follower and tensioner at the same time.

    Both will give you trouble eventually....like everyone is saying deal with them at the same time and be worry free. If it were me...

    - rebuild vacuum pump with one of those seal kits charles posted pics of. Something like $20 and you're good.
    - gasket on cam chain cover.. $10
    - coolant flange - it'll be sitting right there taunting you.....its $20 and normally a pain to get at

    knock on wood....but my cam tensioner and associated bits and pieces are hanging in there. If you have any issues in that area you might want to consider taking care of them...maybe the rings on the rings on the cam adjuster?
