Valve stem seals

Tue 21 Aug, 2018 10:32 pm

Hey, recently bought a tt gto with a sticker on the back with the url for this forum, so thought i'd try here.

Car had been sitting for years, and had motor swapped a while ago. But by the sounds of it, valve stem seals need replacing. And things are rather rough.

Just wondering is it worth doing myself with little knowledge or if its even worth taking to a shop.

Cheers

It won't be the stem seals.
Prior planning prevents piss poor performance.

Facebook technical support/analysis and understanding of technical is crap. Even the Yanks are fooked up on F/B. Probably the beauty of F/B is that 3 months after posting the post is lost in the depth of crap posted latterly.
Why do you ask if it's Orange?? that's intriguing Chronos.... hmmmm?
Magnit is dead right it aint the valve seals mate. More like the rings, if any are left unbroken... Enjoy your GTO engine! I do.

yea i tend to refer people back to the forum when they have proper questions, i guess the appeal of FB is that someone is going to look at it and give an answer (not necessarily the correct answer) pretty much instantly.

but been doing this forum thing for 10+ years im not going anywhere haha



and coz an orange one with severe smoking issue was sold recently in CHCH
