weird....

Hey guys,

I started my girl up today to take my mate for a spin in it after the new cam was put in. needless to say he was very impressed, anyway,

when i started her up it spat out some oil out the back. almost like a light shower as if it was raining oil r something... it only lasted a min r so and it doesnt blow any smoke so its not burning oil. It doesnt use oil and it doesnt have any coolant in it so the head gasket is fine.... ive had the cam in for about 500kms now n this is the 1st time ive noticed it...

Any idea what it could be?

PS getting extractors tommorow :)

Cheers,
Keldo

Re: weird....

Condensation ? or oil leaking into inlet through gasget ?? Has the cam just been replaced ??? If it happens once on first start up then I wouldn't worry about it...

Re: weird....

Yeah just had the new cam put in. She's about due for an oil change so il see how it goes. DOnt think they changed the rocker cover gasket either so il chuck a new one in while im at it.

Its definately oil, its sticky n a brown oil colour.
Thanks for the advise

Re: weird....

If they have kept the std rocker cover gasgets..They are steel with rubber type gasget bonded..They should be fine to be re used..Check that bolts are tight though...
