Oil Seepage At Cam Position Sensor/Misinterpreted Head Gasket Leak
THIS BULLETIN SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 09-02-94, DATED MAR. 18, 1994, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES AND NOTED IN THE 1994 TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN MANUAL (PUBLICATION NO. 81-699-95054). THIS IS A COMPLETE REVISION AND NO ASTERISKS HAVE BEEN USED TO HIGHLIGHT REVISIONS.
NOTE :THIS INFORMATION APPLIES TO MODELS WITH A 2.0L SOHC/DOHC OR A 2.4L ENGINE.
Whenever performing oil leak diagnosis on one of these models carefully inspect the cam sensor area to determine if the leak originates from the seal or from other sources. A leak in this area can be mis-interpreted as a leaking head gasket. Additionally, whenever a head gasket is replaced, the cam seal should always be replaced to prevent the possibility of the vehicle returning with oil seepage.
