Thumbs down Got another leak

Well Last week I posted the thread about the car leaking because of a head gasket issue (Wrong year) . Installed the correct gasket and Guess what? its not leaking there anymore, But and this rebuild has been a big butt, something is leaking onto the exhaust manifold causing fumes that make you a little dizzy which can be fun at first but by the end of the night you have a headache. Now the only thing I can think of, that could leak there is the valve cover gasket. If anybody else has had this issue please let me know

That is more than likely CARBON MONOXIDE.......i.e.VERY DANGEROUS!.....You need to nip that in the bud pretty quick IMO.......I would check your exhaust manifold gasket first,then work your way back checking for a small leak in the exhaust or the flex pipe.(That's the flexible pipe between the exhaust manifold and the CAT).http://www.cdc.gov/co/faqs.htm

Shouldn't be that much CO in the cabin, even with broken exhaust manifold

Wow I'm an idiot! The whole time there was oil in the lower heat shield that I missed when I was cleaning the bay (a lot of oil). Washed the shields and now all is good. She came to pick up the pt about 10 min ago and I can move on to the other projects. Next project is a neon and I know that uptown and a few other guys are familiar with that build, ill be checking in for advice.
