engine front cover

alright, i have been diggin all weekend,

i would like some info as the drain looking plug at the lower center of the engine cover, located directly behind the lower pulley or balancer. i seem to have a small oil drip coming from this plug.

i would like to know if it has brass seal similar to an oil pan drain plug. can anyone tell me if oil will spill out if removed. any help will be greatly thanked, and i will post up a pic tomorrow morning....

That's your oil pressure regulator spring plug some oil will drain out when you remove it. It shouldn't be under pressure but if it is than you have something jammed in there so remove the spring and feel around with your finger to remove it and reassemble.

That oil drip could be coming from your front seal. When your engine is running I believe there is oil pressure against that seal so it shouldn't leak then, but it may drip after you shut it off. Mine is showing the same thing. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this.

i have been watching it, there is no oil present anywhere but at the base of the plug mounting surface,

does any one think it should be replaced for proper sealing, just a little loose, or like a stated , could there or is there a bushing of sorts.......

I believe there is an o-ring on that plug. It should seal without being too tight.
