This is a great conversation and I’ve learned a few things that I’ll pay closer attention to next time I have to remove them. You guys got me so fired up about these gaskets that this morning I went out and figured I’s start tearing mine down. I feel like an idiot now because I may not have a head gasket failure after all.
Last week when I saw this, I figured it was another gasket failure.
Today on the rack, I noticed this. The mess is coming from the drain plug. At least I hope so for now.
