      Thanks for the pointers. I looked pretty closely at the hoses past the intake, and didn't see any broken. Is there a spot that is common for breakage that's hard to see that I might have missed?

      It was a case of me wanting to believe it could be something else before I tore out the head.

      You can see my previous thread for more background info, but I'll recap.

      First off, this is the form for the 2.8L 30V, you want the 2.8L 12v/VR6 forum.

      However, I did own one. Yes, if the gasket there is broken, that's a problem. The timing chain cover and valve cover...

      Thanks for the tip. I knew it was in the back on the passenger side, didn't realize it was in the front on the driver side. I may have to pull the valve cover and check it out.

      So when I was in there messing with the cam position sensor, I did notice that the timing belt seems quite loose. I could probably slide it off the cam gear with my bare hands. Is it possible that...
