Re: I need head!

Dealership said it had a "faulty gasket" and fortunately they have one in stock and should have it finished by the end of today. Will post update later.

Re: I need head!

Hopefully just a valve cover gasket, a head gasket can also seep oil and is a pain with DOHC.

Let us know what gasket is on the invoice please.

No doubt. Well, they fortunately had another head cover gasket in stock so they were able to take care of it ... (I, of course, will check over the next few days). So far it's looking good. Hope others have better luck than me. Sorry for all my ranting!
