Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Geo Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
I recently had the timing belt and water pump replaced. After coming home I checked under the hood and found out that the new valve cover gasket they installed seemed wet-oily.I was able to put my fiinger on where the new gasket is and my finger had the oily residue on it. My old gasket was ok, it as not leaking at all. It was actually sealing it.
What did they do wrong? They told me it was not leaking. A leak does not have to be flowing. It makes my finger oily when I touch it, I can see the oil on my finger.
What should I do? What can be done to really seal between the valve cover and the rest of the engine block?
I paid for a service and now I have a problem I did not have before. Timing belt looked like new after 128,000 miles. So I did not even need to pay and have it replaced. : (
