Mine had the same problem, the first time I brought it in, they replaced the valve cover gasket. Well, that didn't work, but I found the problem myself, the little doohickie on the driver's side of the engine, at the top, is the VCT, Variable Cam Timing Solenoid. That's where the oil leak was. Mine was bad enough that I lost 1/2 quart of oil in 2000 miles. I brought it in for that problem and they replace the valve cover gasket & the VCT solenoid gasket. That seemed to stem the flow. Took almost a week but at least I come to a stop without having to put my air on re-circulate.

leave the hood shut . you are obviously not educated enough to handle the responsibility associated with the hood latch.

Seemed like an uneducated person judging by the syntax, I'm surprised it didn't read, you know the thingy next to that doohickey, it's peeing or something cause I see oil in there.

R&B, thanks for the lesson, I'll only use leet speak from now on.

Here it goes.

D00d OMG u gt 017 l34|< |V' Fr0|V| ur \/[T 5073|V01D!

C'mon folks we're on the same team, we're here to help each other out; be nice. Okay, I called it a doohickey, I also identified it as a Variable Cam Solenoid.

If you want, you can say "D00d ur 50 l4m3!!" but this forum isn't for smacking each other down, it's for getting the most out of our rides. Not everyone is a professional car modder, nor is everyone out to race the ricers. We have a common interest, we all have a factory modded compact car that just happens to look cool, is fun to drive and we care a bit more about than most other drivers. For some VERY fortunate young people, this is their FIRST real car, it's a thrill and it is a big bummer when there's problems.

Be nice, maybe I offended you with the term "doohickey", maybe you're a Ford SVT engineer but if someone had told ME that their VCT solenoid was leaking, it would have saved me a trip to the shop, it would have also saved Ford a bunch of hassle with an misdiagonsed problem.

I apologize for any thing that I may have said to put anyone down. I wasn't referring to your post gukin, though now that I've had a chance to read your post again you do make mention of a doohickie. Forget about that, sometimes I get lit and get on the forums with a bad temper.

Thanks for the lesson in courtesies I'll try and heed your advice in the future.

Back on topic was it the leak in the solenoid or not? I'd like to know what to look for in the future.
