Confirmed with the engine fault code (only one) using the “short the green plug and count the engine flashes on the dash method”. Code 25, which is the variable induction solenoid valve error. Yep, need a new electro valve...

She’s driving nicely... plenty of juice! But I’m sad to say, she didn’t even get to 500kms without its first oil leak... bloody hell!

Appears to be leaking from the cam position sensor, and it’s brand new. I’m guessing maybe a thicker o ring will do the trick or maybe even a slight smear of silastic.

Would excess blow by gasses cause this?
I have a ryco catch can that maybe is restricting air flow? Also, I made a makeshift sealed lid for the dipstick funnel because oil spray was shooting out as the plastic on the dipstick is long gone. I could just be reading into it too far and it could just be a cheap seal on the sensor.
