      Server Slowness & Strange behavior   03/15/2018

      I'm aware of the server and the site speed being weird. Might find strange server error messages and other things happening randomly. What I do know is the hard drive is hitting 100% load randomly and driving the server load up high. Then for no reason, the hard drive returns back to normal loads and server load drops. I've got the hosting company watching this and attempting to find a solution. I apologize for the performance issues... Thanks for understanding...

Are my valve covers leaking?

Recommended Posts

post-10510-138698172948_thumb.jpgI constantly have what I think is oil around my injectors. (it doesn't smell like fuel)I'm guessing it's my valve cover gaskets.hopefully these pictures will post and I can get other opinions.I should adjust my valves anyway.

Sure looks like valve covers to me... I would say the Napa sells gaskets for $6 bucks a piece... Not bad for $36 bucks to replace them all...

They are even less than that. $4.88 + tax here. This is the part number FPG VS50396R and they come with a one year warranty.

Mine leak as well, even after changing the gaskets. Well mainly/only #6. Not sure what the deal is. I am thinking either valve seats causing some sort of instantaneous pressurizing or blow by maybe, not sure. Just make sure where the gaskets seat on the head is very clean. If you have any crap there it will make an impression into the gasket and be a possible leak spot (might also be my issue).
