    I tried to change the oil the other day, and it isn't obvious where the oil drain plug is. Can somebody take a picture or explain exactly where the oil drain plug is? Also, is it a normal hexigon bolt or is it something special.

    My aaz motor leaks at the valve cover. I have changed the gasket 3 times but am able to stop the leak. This is a center bolt valve cover that I suspect is somehow bent slightly. What have others done to solve this problem.

    Afternoon! I have a question related to by 1980 Rabbit 1.5 Diesel. I've done some research but still having difficulty determining if the bolts (stretch bolts?) that secure the valve cover need to be replaced after taking off the cover (circled below in red). I believe at least 1 is stripped...

I am thinking that...
