Re: Mystery oil leak on passenger side of engine area.

Waiter 21 brings up a very good possibility. Try this: Take a thin piece of paper(dollar bill) etc. Start the engine and hold it up to the fitting on the valve cover. The paper should flutter. ...

Expansion Valve Replacment

Any of you replaced this AC valve? Any suggestions for avoiding issues? A blockage is suspected.

The system will be evacuated professionally before this is done.

TIA.
