    Hello, 1st post
    anyway...
    The oil filler tube on my C10 seems loose in the valve cover, which leads to oil leaking all over the passenger side of engine
    anyone know how to fix? btw, 1985 C10 4.3L engine with California emissions

    Hey welcome o CK5 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif is it the type of cap with the two tabs on it, or is it a threaded cap? Unless the valve cover is messed up first thing I would try is a new cap.

    if that tube is loose...just clean the oil off around it, and run a bead of oil resistant silicone around it..
