Hi guys. Was hoping someone may be able to help
I’ve noticed some oil leaks, mainly on top of my intake manifold around where it bolts on. There are small little puddles of built up oil all over the top, and it even looks like there’s oil weeping through the bolts if that’s even possible?
also oil seems to be weeping down under the rocker covers towards where the spark plugs are located
NOTE: have just had the rocker cover gaskets replaced and had the whole engine degreased and cleaned.
also just did a service using thicker oil as it was burning a bit.

anyone had this happen before, Intake manifold gasket, head gasket, thread sealer on the bolts? Really not sure. Any help would be appreciated

Intake manifold gaskets are a common problem and it sounds like it might be time to change em.
