I have an 02 WRX wagon as a DD with 170K on it.
This was very well maintained and runs GREAT.
Current mods are full catless wrapped TBE.
SPT intake with K&N short ram
Reflashed to Cobb Stg. 2
Today I discovered a small coolant leak from the passenger side valve cover, at the lower rear part of the valve cover, then the coolant leaves a small trail going down the stock UP to the stock header.
My questions are...
1. Can I still drive it, if I monitor the leak, add coolant as needed, and don't drive hard. The leak is very small.
2. Is there an easy way to replace the valve cover gasket, without pulling the engine, or would it be counterproductive.
I told myself, if I ever had to pull the engine for any reason, I would just stick a new built EJ25 in there with P&P EJ20 heads. But I have too many projects going on to do this right now.
Let me know what you think.
