Hey guys,

I have an oil leak on the Passenger side of the engine, right near the timing cover/exhaust manifold. It looks like its coming from the water pump (impossible though), and its a steady "drip drip", even when the engine isnt running.

What other sources could this be coming from on that side of the engine?? My gut tells me that I have a head gasket going, but there is no coolant in the oil (that I can see) and the car is still dangerously fast and runs smooth. The coolant is pretty rank though... all orange and chunky =)

The car got close to the red mark on the temp gauge when the clutch fan got stuck, but never went over. A bit of coolant boiled onto the ground via the overflow bottle. COuld this have caused a weak spot in the Head gasket?? This happened about 5 weeks ago, but the oil leak is only started recently (about 2 weeks)

Any help would be appreciated. This is driving me crazy!



Oh, the engine is out of a late modle cressida (88 if I remember right =) if that makes a difference.
