Valve cover Gasket

The Valve cover is all the way on top of your engine and holds your valves covered from dust and other debris, it also keeps the splattering of the oil at bay when lubricating the valves. If this gasket is worn it could cause an oil leak.

PCV hoses and valves

You might find the check engine light on in your vehicle. PCV stands for Positive Crankcase Ventilation. The PCV regulates the vacuum pull through the engine crankcase and in turn supply the engine with more gas. If there is a problem with this unit, your vehicle might idle bad, smoke and stutter

Camshaft seals deteriorate over time from wear and tear and can cause unplanned disruption and get you stuck next to the road. Any leak to the system can cause problems. Make sure to get it sorted as soon as possible

If the spark plug wells are filled with oil, it means the O-ring that keeps out oil and debris has deteriorated and needs replacement.
