Default Pt cruiser top end oil starvation. Help.

Alright so my car is leaking oil from an unknown location. My car has been struggling to reach high rpm, I have valve tappet, and score marks on cam lobe number 1. I feel like the leak is causing low oil pressure, but the problem is that all that leaked at first was coolant, and now itís both oil and coolant. It all started when the valve cover started smoking. I know itís not the head gasket because it would not overheat and the car had no coolant and oil mix.

I would suggest checking the oil pressure sensor behind the engine. The sensor is very popular for leaking oil and very hard to see.


On the coolant leaking I would suggest an engine coolant pressure test to see where the coolant is leaking.
