Re: Help with leaky xj

First you need to determine IF the oil is actually oil... IF it is.... then check the PCV lines off the top of the valve cover... that go to the air box... The lines will get obstructed with gunk and cause the engine to slightly pressurize pushing oil vapors up into the line... The fix is to remove the valve cover, clean the baffels where the hose penetrates the valve cover, clean out the hoses.... and then reassemble with a new valve cover gasket.

Might check you power steering hoses and cap for leaks also....
