I am new to the Vauxhall scene - Ex VW so please forgive me if I'm asking 'its been asked a million times' type of questions....here we go
I have just bought a GTE 16V 1990 for a nice price from a friend, however it needs attention. aside from the body, there is a few engine issues...Firstly there is a considerable oil leak which seems that stemm from a few areas, the rocker and sump are weeping which is no problem to fix. But the main one seems to be coming from the (looking from the front end under the bonnet) LHS around the alternator/timing belt area. The leak seems to be worse when running. Are there any favourites around there?
I know that just prior to me getting it the head has been replaced with a pressure tested head, along with renewal of the Head gasket and belt, tensioners and lifters. Thants all i know really.
Secondly, to ensure that the car runs in tip top tune when I have fixed the leaks, are there any things i should clean / renew?
