  • Gear oil smell on valve cover bolts?

    I know it sounds odd but several times now I've noticed the front left valve cover bolts, on the front cylinder, have a strong smell like gear oil when I remove them. Has anyone else ever noticed this? What would cause it? Is oil getting trapped and overheated in there? I don't think it's a problem but it just seems it little bizarre.

    The PO ran gear oil in to quiet down the engine noise.

      You're tripping Doc. Save that shit for the patients.
