:yup: :yup: Hi Guys 1994 eldorado touring coupe. Has anyone sucessfully stopped the oil leaks they seem to never stop even when i fix. Every time i fix one it leaks somewhere else. My question is for this leak. Can i ReTorque valve covers or do i have to replace gaskets they do not seem to be pushing out. Thanks in advance. ,Joe

Replace the valve cover gaskets..... Retorquing might help a litlte but you wont be happy.. I guess its worth a try, always a good idea to do the cheap stuff first!!!

Oil leaks can only happen in so many places... What have you done to try and stop them???

Hi well also i have replaced the oil filter mount that was corroded bad. Weird beacuse no corrosion anywhere else. Also oil pan has been tightened more times than i can count. There is one bolt near the tranny up high behind bracket i had to modify a socket to even tighten it that also comes loose monthly. From what i have heard they didnt fix these problems till year 2000 i could be wrong but i think they changed to different gaskets. Thanks ,Joe

Please dont expect that tightening bolts will give you results... In order to fix leaks you gotta tear stuff apart and replace gaskets......
