    Default Rocker cover

    Ever so slight leak in my z18xer rocker cover gasket, but i know its there none the less.

    Anyone link to to one online to replace this?

    or could i just buy a tube of the sealer stuff from euro car parts and seal round the gasket without having to remove anything?

    Cheers guys

    Cheers bud, got it fitted the day, all seems fine.

    Question is, as my vectra is just ticked over 43k miles, are these common to fail? at this mileage?

    Could anything have caused it?

    Thanks

    I have seen posts where they have leaked, tbh its just one of those luck of the draw things. Maybe wasn't tightened properly at the time of fitting, or just a bad one.
