ok, as most of you mightve known, i posted i was gonna do the repair on my old '94 SE. let me first note, that the 3100 is different from the 2.8/3.1 to repair. on the 2.8/3.1, you dont need to take off the upper intake manifold. on the 3100, you HAVE to.
anyway...i got down to it and figured out that my o-ring probably isnt leaking, but my right lower intake gasket might be. it has a huge glob of goo hanging from it and is positioned higher than the o-ring. or is this just part of the oil pump drive seal mess? i dont see how it could be.
i wish i could post bigger pictures, but all i got is cardomain. inputs would be more than welcome. im getting more parts to pull the lower intake off too and change all gaskets while im at it.
the damn oil pump drive location
...and if you can tell...the damn gooey looking lower intake gasket
EDIT - i just looked at the RTV sealant again this morning and noticed a puddle of antifreeze sitting on top of it. suggestions? ...PLEASE?!?!
