What is leaking on passenger side rear of this 2009 EJ25?

Recommended Posts

I see the oil sensor/switch and another valve and the rear cam cap. 

Leak looks a little low and to the bottom of that “valve”?

anyone know if that part needs replaced or resealed..?

If you're concerned about it, replace the AVLS gasket. Get an OEM one or a metal style aftermarket. 5 bucks or so and it should take you 15 minutes or less. 

They leak over time.

Great thanks!  I hadn’t pulled one of those yet so I was uncertain in a few ways. I’ll open the FSM and get the gasket.  

Engine was recently out and cleaned and that’s from not many miles so it’s probably more significant than the pic suggests.

Unplug the solenoid and sensor. Remove 4 bolts and it's off. Super simple. 

Perfect, thanks a bunch.

The switches fail ALL THE TIME. They leak from the electrical connector. The grey one.  We replace them on every HG job. If they get touched in any way - even to unplug them - they get swapped out. Dealer stocks dozens.

I’ve replaced those before. This is leaking below that but I’ll replace this one as well.
