LSVTEC OIL LEAK

Whas goin on, ive recently had my lsvtec engine rebuilt and i owe the dude 400 and its leaking so im avoiding bringin it to him, been having a few problems since the rebuild so hes not gettin his money haha. Anyways worked the dum problems out.

So now i have a leak from where the vtec solenoid connects. Ive tried puttin silicone with the gasket and it didnt do much it is still leaking. Any input would help cuz the car is in Pennsylvania(was visiting over there) and im in new york and goin bak for the car tomorrow. Hopefully could get some help on how to fix it.

was also thinkin maybe wen they did the rebuild they mighta not have changed it

thanks guys

You need a new gasket for it. I doubt it was replaced for a rebuild unless the head was torn down. Take the silicone off, pull the gasket out carefully clean and dry it all then put it back together carefully tightening the bolts in steps like you do head bolts till it's tight. It might seal up then, but I'd get a new one soon.

Then they just got lazy and didn't put a new gasket on it. They come round and when you put them on flatten out. Should be an easy fix.
