Minor Oil sweating from top of F4rT engine

Recommended Posts

I've got an on going oil sweating/ minor leak at tge top of my F4rT engine. Just appears around spark plugs. Had local mechanic replace a minor seal. Doesn't seem to be a leak so much as heavy sweating at top of motor. Curious if this is a know issue with engine model? Also is Paris auto in boxhill a good spot to get a service ?

No uncommon to have some oil build up around the filler. Also adjacent to this is the dephaser solenoid valve which can weep a little. Also under the manifold is the breather system that has a seal and the breather comes direct from the cam cover into the manifold. This seal could poss weep a little too. None are a real worry. More so if a vacuum leak occurs on the manifold breather seal.

Hey thank you. I'll still get it checked out when possible.

My only real frustration is oil smell as it is cooking off on the top of the motor.
