JTS rough idle
Well I've had 7 months of enjoyable motoring in my 156 JTS, few electrical gremlins (could do with a new battery me thinks), and a erattic engine noise caused by a collapsed aux tensioner.
Now lies this issue or rough idling, so off to the shop to get me new spark plugs (as I don't know how old the current set are), quite a few ££££ later I get home and start to fit them.....
Spark plug 1, full of oil, spark plug 2 smidge of oil round the seal, 3 ok, 4 ok.
Now I now I have an oil leak, 1: running down the cambelt cover, and 2: leaking from the far side of the cam cover.
So done me a little bit of homework and found that if at some point, the cam cover was removed (say during a cam belt change) the gasket sould be replaced to create a nice seal, well I'm guessing that it wasn't changed, so I am left with trying to hunt down a new cam cover gasket.
Can anyone point me in the right direction, as currently I can't seem to find one, or a price of one for that matter (2.0 JTS)
