An oil leak at the front of the engine may be a result if internal cracks in the timing cover. These cracks are caused by over torquing the oil cooler pipes. If leaks are noted at the cooler pipe fittings, the fittings/pipes should be removed, cleaned, and reinstalled to the correct torque. Our technicians tell us if the leaks persist the timing cover is most likely cracked internally and should be replaced.
The check coolant warning light may illuminate if the incorrect engine coolant mix or type is used. The coolant/water mixture should be kept at the 50/50 ratio for proper warning light operation.
