Exxon Valdez pays a visit

I would rename this car the Devil Bitch if I could, lol. This poor car had a PO that just didn’t put any money into maintenance, which has made getting the engine oil tight a real pain in the rear. It is one then when you have a small oil leak and then repair it, but when you let it go and then other oil leaks start, it is nearly impossible to figure out where the oil is coming from. Such was the case with this 951. I finally figured out the oil leak was coming from the oil cooler housing on the side of the motor (which drips down off the lower balance shaft housing, thus mimicking a leak there). Since there is zero sight visibility to the oil cooler, you don’t know what you have until you pull the belt cover off and can see above the balance shaft housing.
