Hi guys.
As you may know, I've just finished the initial part of project mending The Alfa. But I have a medium size oil leak. It's leaking from the rocker cover so I probably screwed something up when I replaced the gasket.

There's also a leak on the timing belt side of the engine that I haven't located yet and I suspect the oil return from the turbo is leaking.

My questions are:

1: What is the correct torque for the rocker cover bolts?

2: I haven't touched anything on the timing side of the engine, so what could be leaking?

It's the 2.4.

I need ideas, so any input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

They don't have a simple old fashioned rocker cover....just a cam carrier....so if its leaking its a cambelt off job to fix it. Make sure it's not the oil filler pipe leaking and running along the gasket joint. Mine was...and I only noticed just before i tore into the head to fix the gasket! A little black silicone and the filler pipe has not leaked since!

My dad has had a chance to look at the car. It leaks for the turbo, cam carrier and pas reservoir.

He also found the correct torque for the cam carrier bolts, 10 Nm. I torqued them to 15 Nm.

So why is it leaking?
