Chris, Thanks for you informative response and your questins clearly reflect knowledge of the subject. I just changed the oil return tubes and the valve cover gasket last night and could not wait until this morning to look under the car. I am happy to say it was dry as a bone which I think is a good indication. I am going to wait a couple of weeks and drive the car as much as possible and see if it will develop any leaks. I also failed to mention in my privious question that the car's performance is very good, I had made the usual simple upgrades, performance chip, cone filter, borla muffler, and an SS test pipe. The car never burned any oil what so ever when I start it or drive it. It was consuming oil, but I do not know if it was due simply to the oil retuen tubes and the gasket or not. But as I mentioned I am going to drive the car and see if it will consume more oil than regular, and make sure that the consumtion is not due to any leaks. The reason being to see if I need to addres the head studs issue or any othernew issues. I am going to ask for your patiance and report to you in two to three weeks and answer the questions that you raised in your response. I know that this may not qualify as a question, however I tried to respond to your Email but the message would not go through.So if you do not respond to this message that will be fine, and I will report to you in a couple of weeks. Once again thank you. Hassib.
