moisture in rocker cover

Postby cococola » Fri May 05, 2017 9:07 pm

Ive replaced my rocker cover for a chrome one today and notice some moisture and very light creamy substance n the rockers. I have checked the oil and that is still clean from a change a couple of months ago and the coolant goes down slightly as expected. Is this anything to worry about please?

No, just give the car a decent run now an then to get fully up to temperature, and record your water loss amount, (a good blast in a low gear helps)

Sound like condensation from humid air. It can be resolved with a positive crankcase vent.

What is this please?
I do have the pipe that comes out of the rocker cover top.
