    Thread: Oil leaking into ignition coil

    1. 06-03-2010 02:46 PM #1
      Well I got my ignition coils replaced per the recall today and the guy said there is a bunch of oil when they pulled out the ignition coils and he recommended I replace the cam seals and valve cover gasket for $500. Is this an easy thing to do yourself and is there a DIY out there or can anyone point me in the right starting direction?

      Any help will be appreciated as I have to change the timin belt also so figuring out if I can save the 1500 the dealership is quotinG me for both jobs.

      Thanks,

      Joe

      it's probably the valve cover gasket, you can buy one for less than 25 about bucks and do it yourself.i have both a 1.8 and a 20t, they both leak a little into the coils, but so far cause no harm. tthey use no oil between changes and in 40k miles between plug changes leak just enough to get thing wet.
