After replacing all plastic parts and hoses, etc. my coolant leak did not stop until the factory hose clamps were replaced with worm drive clamps.
There is a very slow oil leak on the car at the front of the engine now, possibly timing cover, cannot see it.
Anybody found it yet?
Thanks

Alternately, you could have used new spring clamps and you might get a little longer before the plastic cracks.

On the oil leak, it most likely is the timing cover gasket. Sorry.

Figured that it was the cover.
What a PITA that will be to replace.

i would leave it alone they leak real slow. i dropped by the aston dealer and their new tech was doing a cover on the 4.3, big bill for something that wasn’t even dripping on the floor.
