I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
The most common leak points on this engine are the valve covers, timing covers, and alternator bracket seal.
As for killing, this is usually a fuel pressure problem or faulty cam / crank sensor.
Please let this is most me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
