1990 YJ valve cover leaks..with pics
First time posting. The comanche club is not allowing me to join so
I'm here in the wrangler forum to get some advice on the 1990 YJ I purchased the other day.
I am new to the jeep scene so forgive any redundant talk. It's a YJ 1990 comanche 2.5L 4 speed manual. So far I love driving it around the mountain.
Oil is leaking from the valve cover. Its collecting on the ground verrryyy little.
There is also oil on the drip pan and on the area around the drip pan.
i tightened valve cover bolts. Just about all of them were not fully tightened.
Its leaking still but less.
I keep hearing talk about valve gasket cover, rear main seal, and valve seal.
Also I heard some post talk about bellhousing. not sure what it is but if its the big ass bell right below the valve cover toward the engine rear it has NO oil on it.
I took some pics.
