  1. I changed the oil on my 6 just before putting it away for the winter although I did have a few short drives before this. I used a Unipart GEF 443 filter which is a short stubby one to gain clearance as i have an oil cooler. So since its been away it has been dry until last week when I had to move the 6 out of the garage and now its leaking oil from the filter seal and has continued to do so for the last few days, about half an egg cup. Its a mystery why it should do this now but perhaps the cold oil increased pressure. I checked the OPV and that seems fine. I am going to put a new filter on so question is have I fitted the correct one or can some one suggest a better or right one to fit. cheers

    Oil Venting

    I have an oil catch tank which collects vented oil from the block and rocker cover and at the moment it is probably half full but has always worked pretty flawlessly as its not exactly a complicated arrangement. The last two times I have used the car oil is being discharged from the fill cap on the rocker cover. Can any one advise whats gone wrong or how to fix this?

  4. Ive just pulled the Ali radiator from my 6 as the well around the bottom header was full of coolant. Ill give it a wash tomorrow and once dry Ill try and find the leak but it looks like the epoxy compound to the fin header joint may have failed somewhere. Options seem to be a new one which is expensive if you have a thermostat circa £400 (serck which my one looks like) A repair by a specialist although one web site the repair at this joint can be difficult Have a go at repairing myself, stic tite looks like it might flow well into the well. I would rather stay with an ally rad Any opinions or recommendations for a repairer in Herts or a reliable new rad option?
