Haha, I wouldn't do that. Put the car on the ramp, remove the catalyst and you can see te oil return line from underneath. Access still is not that straightforward, but with the right set tools (set of 1/4" tools) possible.So smoke has re-appeared. I thought it was the valve cover gasket but my garage and I think its the oil return pipe. They say I have to take off the head! Is this the only way to access it?
Brian,you can do it from underneath easy enough, without removeing any exhaust components. just make sure the engine and exhaust are cold, a little cursing and its possible. I am a Auto Tech, so somewhat used to this kind of thing, just take your time and dont get frustrated, thats when the skin comes off and the blood starts flowing! Good luck Brian
