    If there was an intake manifold vacuum leak, such as a bad disty gasket, could this cause a lean situation and thus cause pinging?

    I know this isn't my whole probelm, just wondering if the leaky disty gasket would aid in pinging?

    A leaky distrinbutor gasket would only cause an oil leak...and not much of one at that. To contribute to pinging an intake leak would have to be near one of the intake ports allowing extra outside air in causing a lean condition...

    Hey, I wa wondering if you were on-line. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Well, it does create quite an oil leak. Although I am wondering if there is no gasket under the disty since my friend would play with the timing from time to time and leave the disty a little loose.
