I have a leaking timing chain housing that was repaired once but began leaking again. Anyone tackle this job before and is it a DIY. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate it.

I have never done one in the car! If you drop the engine and remove the rear tinware its easy to do the rubber gaskets are the same part no for both sides now! you just put one on upside down. you will also nead the rubber seals that go under the cuped washers and put a little instant gasket on the threds to stop the oil leaking up the thred. hope this helps.

Odds are it's not the gasket leaking but oil wicking up the stud thread. As Berny stated, use sealing product such as Loctite 501 or 518 on the thread. Remove the retaining nuts one at a time,clean the oil off using brake clean,then compressed air to dry the threads, only a small amount of sealant is needed on the stud thread and torque to the correct spec.

Only one stud is leaking and it's stripped, just keep turning and turning. I located a used housing and cover for a steal compared to what most wanted. Can't seem to find anyone who has done this. I'll try the loctite first and see if it helps. thanks
