Well it looks like the full circle camshaft plug is weeping some oil on drivers side , just below the camshaft sensor and above the coolant outlet to thermostat on a 1.6. If it is leaking is this a difficult fix? Or could i use some rtv to buy some time, because i am gonna do the timing belt , water pump and vave cover gasket very soon. Thank You.

Black circle plug here ?

Buy a valve cover gasket set, and a plug.

You'll want to remove the cap that holds the cam sensor, clean the bore of oil and debris, and install new cap, and re-assemble in reverse order.

Good. I was gonna order the t-belt kit with valve cover gasket. Now just gotta find the right plug to order. Do you know if the plug seals with an o-ring or some other style? Thank you.

I hope i get a chance soon to replace cam shaft plug. When i do it, do you punch out the old plug and then press in the new plug ? Any special tools or how too"s. Your info is the only info I found on the web for the cam shaft plug. Thank you.
