I did my VC gasket, distributor hole plug, PCV grommet, and tube seal gaskets on Saturday, and it turned out just fine. Got rid of that pesky oil leak dripping on the trans, looks like it was leaking long before I bought the car. All nice and neat now. BUT...NO SLUDGE ANYWHERE IN THE HEAD!!! YEA!!! Not a smidgen! Just the normal light brown varnish at 168K...I almost danced around the car!!! If this car won't go 300K, I'll beat myself!! I use Castrol GTX 5W-30, OEM filter, and 2K OCI's. She belches some burnt oil after sitting for several hours, but that's normal at this mileage. It will be years before I foul a plug. Got all my parts from Gary at Newnan Toyota.
