so my car is leaking oil into my plugs and sitting on top of my valve cover under my coil packs, i figure intake manifold gasket, but i am a novice, so any advice on this? and also my car broke down, i do not know if it was from the plug situation but it idles extremely rough and then dies out- also to add when i remove the dipstick there is exhaust coming out of it. any ideas on this also?? i was considering head gasket, pcv valves, or block catalytic converter... i greatly appreciate any help or ideas.

Not much help other than to say it's gonna cost ya.... Head gasket is a definate maybe ...... Just for info, how many miles do you have on the engine ?? . I have the epica 04, with about 30,000 miles and other than the couple of minor recalls and the heater cable the car has been a wonderful machine .. But from the posts i would say i am on borrowed time ....new wheels arriving end of Oct. (RAV4),
Best to ya,
Michael .

yeaaa

i got a 114,000 on it. and i just today replaced the intake manifold gasket to see if that was some of my problem and as i was just finishing up reasembling the manifold and putting all the sensors back i smelled gas only to see one of my injectors is leaking. hopefully just an o-ring. but seriously. i had a 91 cadillac fleetwood with 230,000 miles on it that still runs better that this. ahhhhhhhh

Any suggestions ...

Thanks for the mileage info..... I wonder what service history your car has...... My partener has a Toyota sienna with 100.000 miles all services done since new and it literally sounds like new........and yes i too had a chevy with 200,000 miles and it too did not use oil .. but was serviced every 3,000 miles... Guess one pays one way or the other ...... Again, best wishes,
Michael ......
