Re: [DMCForum] Re: I now know why...



This "new" leak, could have been pre-existing due to no heatshield when
I got the car and the whole back side of the engine on the bottom (from
the driver, around back, to the passenger) being covered in dry oil. The
2 major leaks I had fixed on driver and passenger sides may have been
causing this one not to leak. When I had done the oil change, I ran the
engine for a bit, but not nearly as long as I let it run last night.
