Could you Please tell me more about this, Ive searched oil leaks and for the 3.3 liter they say its the valve cover gasket but i haven't heard about the PCV or blowby.You probably have a PCV, restricted exhaust or blowby concern. Take it back to the shop and have them fix it right.
What M in Toronto said. I remember now about this campaign. Go to the dealer and see if you are covered under this.Could you Please tell me more about this, Ive searched oil leaks and for the 3.3 liter they say its the valve cover gasket but i haven't heard about the PCV or blowby.
They said that your vehicle has the service performed? Do you remember that? Did they ask for your VIN number?I did call the dealer to which they said it was done in 2016 and that was that, because of the age of the car (2007) they wouldn't do it again. Im interested in the PCV valve, would that cause a oil leak. The front of my motor doesnt appear to be wet it looks more like it may be coming from the side possibly the timing chain cover or the rear valve cover. Im just trying to pinpoint it, funny thing is its leaking more than it did originally.
That's backwards....You DO NOT want to use solvents. They will degraded the insulation on the thin wiring of the stator and it'll short out. A degreaser followed by fresh water and blow dry. Myself I would take it apart and do it,,,but that's me.Take the hose off the valve cover opposite the PCV valve and when it's hot and idling see if any air is puffing out of it. If the PCV is working right there should be a slight vacuum on that hose at idle.
Put if you also want to clean the alternator I would not use a detergent but solvent then water. Gunk is one as long as it's the diesel fuel type but they also make a detergent based.
