SOURCE: rocker cover oil leaks NL pajero 1998 NL

The gaskets may not be at fault; the first time the valve cover was removed it was probably damaged by an impatient mechanic.
Most covers are sheet metal and the gaskets have an ugly tendency to get sticky over time making removal very difficult.
An inexperienced or sloppy mechanic can easy damage the edge of the cover causing a permanent distortion that a gasket replacement cannot correct.

I hope you have correctly identified the source of the leak since a warped cylinder head can also cause oil loss but that would be from the junction of the cylinder and block.
That would be much more expensive to correct than replacing a damaged valve cover.

Possibles here. Valve cover is too tight. If you used sealer on it, it could allow the gasket to slip when snugging.

SOURCE: How does the timing belt cover come off the 1998

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

2.3L/2.5L Engines
(see Figure 1 - click over pic for zoom)

zjlimited_982.jpg

Fig. 1: Timing belt cover on the 2.3L/2.5L engine

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer on the inner belt cover.
Always turn the engine in the normal direction of rotation. Backward rotation may cause the timing belt to jump time, due to the arrangement of the belt tensioner.
  1. Drain cooling system. Remove the upper radiator hose as necessary. Remove the fan blade and water pump pulley bolts.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Loosen the alternator retaining bolts and remove the drive belt from the pulleys. Remove the water pump pulley.
  2. Loosen and position the power steering pump mounting bracket and position it aside.
  3. Remove the timing belt outer cover retaining bolts and any interlocking tabs and remove the cover.
To install:
  1. Install the timing belt cover.
  2. Install the water pump pulley and fan blades. Install upper radiator hose if necessary. Refill the cooling system.
  3. Position the alternator and drive belts, then adjust and tighten it to specifications.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Hope helps (remember to rated this answer).

Oil pressure sensor replaced 9/14/2015started to leak oil again. Valve cover gasket replaced 1/6/2016 9/14/2015 now leaking oil again


When you replace the rocker cover gaskets, clean the surfaces where the gasket contacts the heads and the rocker cover with alcohol and a rag. Make sure there is absolutely no oil residue on either surface. Use a silicon sealer and spread it on the side of the gasket that will touch the head. Position it and use the head bolts temporarily as guide pins to hold the gasket in place until the sealant dries COMPLETELY. Remove the bolts. Now put more sealant on the surface of the rocker cover and install the cover on the gasket gently so as not to disturb the gasket. Install the cover bolts and tighten firmly but not so as to squeeze or deform the gasket. If dine correctly, the gasket will not leak.

Leaks oil from rocker cover. repaired 3 times. is this a common fault? what is the solution?


The rocker cover will leak oil..............

1. If the rocker cover has been damaged due to poor mechanical fitment and is no longer perfectly straight; or
2. The rocker cover bolts are not torqued evenly at the correct ft/lbs specification; or
3. If the rocker cover bolts have been excessively torqued in which event the cover will distort and the gasket will be excessively compressed; or
4. The gasket is in poor condition and needs to be renewed; or

5. The gasket fitting is sloppy done in which event you can assume the cover will not have been properly fitted either.

I would be buying a new rocker cover (or a straight used one) before doing the next repair because your original is probably deformed now and will likely never seal properly.

I have water in the rocker covers


I guess it would depend on how much water and is it clear.
The engine can have condensation until you start it and warm it up, which would be a few drops or so on the inside of the covers. Normally the crankcase venting system is a closed system and outside air can not get in easily.
An intake leak of coolant should be oily and green or orange.

Oil leak from rocker cover


It is most probably the rocker cover gasket. This is enough to install, you just need to source the correct part from your local parts store or dealer. Remove bolts and rocker cover and replace seal. Ensure on replacement, that you use a sealant that is compatible with oxygen sensors, I use PERMATEX ULTRA-BLU RTV Silicone. That seams to work a treat.

I have 94 miata with oil leak in back of the engine looks like it's coming from the right side somewhere


If I can remember,, check valve cover rubber where it seams with camshaft rubber on rear of cylinder head, the 1/2 moon rubber sits in a concave slot in head itself,usually removed, clean and reuse rubbers with a dab of silicone.
