My wife has a 1989 colt with a 1.5 ..this has been a great car...she loves it and will not replace it... the car has developed a oil leak...first we thought it was the cam seal....that didnt fix it..so we retourqed the head gasket that didnt fix it ...new oil pressure switch . still leaking...i have washed the engine to see where it is comeing from and i cant find it...has anyone else had this trouble ?? should i pull the head and change the gasket ?? i was told that if i do that ,it will start smoking and using oil... i dont know if thats true ..i am no macanic... if any one has any ideas please let me know...thanks for your time Bruce
