If whoever put it on and not paying attention, it can be put in upside down, and cause problems. They are usually marked (this side up).

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.

Can you put head gaskets on back to front


it is very possible to install head gaskets backwards. if installed incorretly you will block oil and water passages .the oil hole is not very large so you will want to make sure they are not clogged by the gasket material

Camshaft locked up


dry cam.?
so what did you do , just before it went dry. ( nothing. ?)
got full oil pressure, mine does 50 psi cold at sender port on left side.
was head off? yes.?
then you put the head gasket backwards and blocked the 50thou head port. in left front of block deck.
my new felpro gasket is marked, UP. buy Felpro gaskets. then win.
i do top end oil ,last after i rebuild engines, and do it, only with starter
and no fuel. i never burn up engines, new.
not one. yet.

if this just happened by magic? doing nothing?
then the orifice is plugged in the head, mine is 0.050" in diameter.
can clog easy, if not careful.
one way is using RTV and it gets to there.

On idel ok when reving up very top end rattle have been told the block is a 204e and head is a 205e could that be the problem


Yes!
If you build an engine like this, you must use the composite head gasket from the 204 engine or you will have a heavy top end rattle!

Great question. B204 and B234 engines have negative deck heights. (the piston sticks out of the block a bit, so you need a thicker head gasket.

Oil pressure problems


First thing, check your timing. That should help with the had starting. Depending on how hot you car got when the gasket went out you could have burned your oil or galded a bearing. Take a long screw driver a put one end of it up to the oil pan and the other side to your ear and listen for knocking or rattling in the bottom end. Sounds like you are going to need a complete engine rebuild.
