I have a 1992 Lexus ES300 3.0L MFI DOHC 6cyl I had the heads redone but didnt replace the cams or the lifters. I put new oil pump and water pump head gaskets and all new seails and timing bult and sincers. New plugs and wires. So the things I need to know is why there is a taping coming from the top of the motor? It taped befor to but I was told it was the oil pump that was going out. So can you tell me what is the cheapiest way to go to fix this thing lol! I have spent 1200 on this motor and am about to put a fire under it lol!

Replace the cam and valve lifters and make sure its set/adjusted properly as per repair manual-recheck oil pressure
