    Question Yet another oil leak and window regulator question

    The window question is rather simple, anybody have a window regulator (full assy) compatible for a '99 rear/driver they're willing to sell?

    Oil - I've replaced my valve covers twice (believe the Opel forum guy when he says get the OEM gaskets - or you WILL do it twice) but I still have a leak. It's further down and causes a decent smoke out (particularly on the drivers side) when it hits the exhaust. Any thoughts? Better, anybody have any luck with leak detection kits DIY?

    TIA

    Don't waste your time with those warped plastic cam covers, get a junkyard Saturn metal set and be done with it. you have to buy two rear ones without the oil fill neck and put oil in it with a dipstick funnel. Only takes 20 seconds per quart and no more leaky valve covers.
    Second best thing i ever did for the car, the first was bypassing the oil / water heat exchanger so it can never fail. U can do that from below, right above the oil filter canister and never have to open the top of the engine.

    Interesting concept, but at the moment the valve covers aren't part of the issue (at least for now). I may have to try your solution if they do creep back up again.
    Any other thoughts on the leak I do have?

    Is it coming from the oil cooler?

    I would check the oil cooler or the oil cooler lines
