oil leak question...
OK, heres the deal, my valve cover somehow developed a crack about 12 inches long right about the manifold. Unfortunatly I didnt discover this until about 1 or 2 quarts drained onto the rest of the engine, and all over the new headers. My question is this: I replaced the valve cover, and the car still smokes, but it looks like it is just remaining oil burning off of the headers and engine, how long does it take for the oil to burn away? And another thing, the rear rubber gromit on the valve cover leaks a bit of gray smoke when the the engine is accelerated, how to fix this? Is there supposed to be gray smoke in the valve cover? I never noticed it before.
