oil leak

ey all

got a bit of a nasty oil leak on the 8 at the moment,its on the passenger side closest to the firewall and its loosing about 500ml every week.
i thought it was the oil pressure switch but im told its up the front.
could it be the rocker cover leaking as i cant think of anything else it could be.
if it is the rocker cover would it need only a tightening or a new rocker cover?

cheers

Re: oil leak

If its the rocker cover gasket tightening will usually just make it worse but hey what have you got to lose (except the threads on the holddowns)? Try a new gasket and do not overtighten.
