Phase 1 RPM Sensor Oil Leak - Question
Finally tracked this oil leak down, got it weeping out of the RPM sensor when the revs are higher, dripping onto the exhaust and making an oil burning smell whenever I pull up at lights etc. It was making a right mess under the car..and my drive!
So after changing the Rocket Cover seal, re-sealing the variator solenoid, changing the rear crankshaft & balance shaft seal (these were leaking anyway), combined with a clutch change (judder when hot) and a gearbox change (Autolusso - replacement not new) I have another question for you fine gentlemen.
Should there be a seal/O ring on the RPM sensor? There is on the Ph 2 RPM sensor - it can be seen on the Alfa diagram , I presume there should be on the Ph 1 but Alfa can't see one (RPM sensor cost: £150 for a Ph 1 whereas £33 for a Ph 2!?). A tad too expensive for an O Ring! I do not have a seal in there at all - have used some blue gasket sealant for now. Has anyone had theirs out at all?
Thanks in advance - and a special thanks to the "enthusiast" who sold me the car a month ago...must of had a pair of binoculars..
