Hi, unfortunately my bready has become an annoying illusive siv... I have had an oil leak fairly excessively for a couple months costing copious amounts on oil. I decided after looking and looking that although I had a suspicion of the leak being from either the rocker or head gaskets as had just changed them. So after fully dismantling and re assembling after a deep bay clean and an actual metal coloured engine had appeared I was able to see it was from the rocker cover gasket in the drivers side and closest to front of car corner of the gasket. The rocker cover sits level but does have some movement left right when the top bolts are not tightened down. Is there a position the rocker cover has to be in to properly seal? The gasket is also seemingly slightly big as you can see it on a side of the rocker cover when it moves. Have attached pics to help explain although have a video I cannot attach here of the movement l/r of the rocker I can email etc ? Any help appreciated Thanks a lot George
Hey guys, not much of a greese monkey and my English is bad so bear with me. I recently bought a 2nd hand 1.4 16v 2003 BBY, been running ok with a few issues but and have been able to fix them, cleaned it up and still working on it. the recent problem m now having is a leak from the valve located at the top of the engine as shown from the attachments, when I cold start it, runs for about 2-5m before it starts getting hiccups. At first I would get black and blue smoke but now just hiccups without smoke(this is after I hadn't started it for a week). Problems started after we cleared check the engine light, so don't if somehow related. That day when I removed the air filter cover the bolt holding that valve was almost fully unscrewed. Seemed as though the pressure from the oil had removed it. White smoke was coming from sparkplug hole diretly inline with the valve, smoke was also from the throttle body, everything was a complete mess. I need help with the possible cause for this, is it risky using the car ? and how can I fix it. I want to work on this car myself if it's possible. I want to understand this car and build it up myself. Please help.
