Thanks for the advice Donald.
But, what if the head gasket HAS been replaced (is there anyway to find out for sure!?)?
"When the cover gasket is replaced you will get the camshaft and thw crankshaft seals renewed also. "
COver gasket different than head gasket? If no, then what if I don't need the head gasket replaced (ahh, I probably do, knowing my luck.)
