    Hi!

    Pinapalitan ko na yung gasket sa valve cover sa speedyfix, hindi na lumalabas ung oil dun sa valve cover, kaso nababawasan pa din ung langis? Hanap ako ng leak pero wala talaga sa garage e.

    Lastime (friday) check ng bro ko almost max ung oil tapos lastnyt check namin namin half na.

    nag flush din ako ng radiator yesterday and ung radiator may buo buong oil? pati ung cover ng radiator. Possible kaya na dun napupunta yung oil?

    Isa pang problem na na-encounter ko umiilaw na ung CEL after 1 min na na- start nung car. Effect kaya un nung nag babawas na oil?

    As a background, kakapalit lang nung Cylinder Head Gasket last month.

    not the head gasket,the head itself is not torque right(baka di mahigpit or nasobrahan sa higpit),imo. try mong lagyan ng cheap oil ulit(fill it to the max line)then see kung mawala yung check engine light mo(might as well remove the battery connection for let say 10 minutes so the ecu will reset itself.

    Baka nga hindi torqued to spec ang bolts nung nag-reassemble as previously posted. Too tight or too lose. Hindi ko din alam ang torque specs ng head bolts ng Galant.

    Baka alam ng www.mymitsuph.com or http://www.thegalantcenter.com/ or http://www.thegalantcenter.net/

    definitely, there shouldn't be oil in your radiator. bring it to speedyfix

    If you've switched to a lower viscosity oil, that can happen as well.

    sprex, was that your galant the other day? it was smoking also and the engine didn't seem to be in good condition. when you replaced the head gasket did they check the valve and valve seals? you might have seen the other galant in the shop when you were there... the 8th gen. it was loosing a liter every couple of days because it had 4-5 bent valves and all the valve seals were leaking oil into the exhaust. it was smoking badly when it got to the shop.

    we replaced the valves, seals and refaced the head and now there is absolutely no smoke na and power is back to normal
