problem #1

Aspire 1.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,778 miles

The car had a massive oil leak from the timing belt area of the engine. After removing timing belt and camshaft pulley, I observed the cam seal to be almost completely popped out of the cylinder head. I replaced both crank and cam seals, timing belt, and pvc( I suspected high crankcase pressure as a contributing factor for seal failure). Within two days the car has developed a massive oil leak again, and from the same area.
