    Sorry to hear

    I see no reason why the warranty won't cover it. Just don't take "no" for an answer.

    Let us know how it turns out.

    My Lincoln LS did a similar thing at 90k and the factory wouldn't do anything even though this problem was a very large one for the 3.9 V8, so before I ripped it apart to change the rocker cover gasket I tried some bardhall (sp) stop leak (it conditions the rubber gaskets) I drove it for 2000kms with it in then changed the oil. Hasn't leaked since 150kms and counting!

    Be happy that it is the driver side. The rocker cover on that side is a lot easier to get off, if you are doing it yourself. If you need any help with the DIY I can give you some guidance. I have done a few things to these cars.
