Re: Leaky Head Gasket... but maybe not so bad?
Its probably best that you use this as a warning sign to redo the head gasket. Ive seen some peoples head/block destroyed from a broken head gasket (the hot gases merge through to neighbouring cyliders and take molten aluminium with it!). With it leaking on the outside it doesnt mean that its leaking on the inside - but you I wouldn't be surprised if it started leaking on the inside in the near future (this will be oil in the water and cooling dramas). Torquing the bolts again seems nasty but give it a go (I wouldn't know what to do them to because its a certain tension plus a quarter of a turn when the gasket is originally torqued uq). Dont be scared - second hand motors are around the $500 mark these days and you can upgrade to a 4.0 litre while you r at it!!
