Default Re: Leaking oil????? Please help!!

It will build oil around the head gasket if it is loose. [Nuts at the head gasket]. Once you get those nuts on the head gasket tight again you will probably notice a lot more power from the motor. Loosing compression at the head gasket robs power.

Tighten the nuts in an X pattern it is important to do it evenly. A torque wrench to about 20 foot pounds is the official way. If you got no torque wrench by hand will have to do . Do it evenly and no tighter than one puts a spark plug in will be about right.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
