1985 2.5L valve cover gasket problems.
Hi there, I have a 1985 oldsmobile calais with the 2.5L engine. I have been trying to resolve a leaking valve cover problem. I tried a cork gasket and it didn't work, so then I tried a rubber $12.99 gasket and it didn't work.
So then I thought the hell with it and got the $32 felpro PN FEL-VS50179T gasket.
This is supposed to be the king of gaskets, no sealing products needed whatsoever. But it still leaks. The valve cover is not distorted or bent in any way. And I cleaned it to like new status. All old silicone is gone, and all oil was completely cleaned with carb cleaner.
Has anyone else had problems with this? I am stumped.
