Torque bolts to spec per alldata.
Well, that's my opinion too. I've never seen anything like this. Customer has been driving the car for nearly 2 months, with no leak at all, since pump replacement, we've been monitoring it. The leak only showed up after she took it on a 300 mile trip. She monitored the oil level throughout the rest of the trip and brought it back to me Wed morning. Oil everywhere under the car. I cleaned it up, set the rpm at 2000 and raised it up. Nearly 3hrs on the lift and nothing, then suddenly it just started dumping oil from the area of the pump or crank seal. As soon as you deccellerate, it quits leaking.
I am at a loss, and was hoping someone somewhere around the country has run into this before. By the way, the oil pressure does NOT spike when this happens, but it consistently runs at about 50-55 lbs of pressure at higher rpms.
Thanks for trying!!
If you don't mind, could you go ahead and cancel?? I think this is a tough one, I was just hoping that someone somewhere had been in this situation before. After several days, I think it's got everyone stumped, even local professionals.
Thanks for trying though!!
P.S. I hope I won't be charged for this.
