Now that I have found "the leak", I believe I need to also do a plenum pan fix. After reading about that issue, I think that is where the oil is going. There is no burning oil to speak of, smell or blue smoke, but I do get engine knock when accelerating onto the freeway. What I didn't see in my research was where to order the aluminum pan. Another thought here. Even though I have no current head gasket issues, if I am replacing the valve cover gaskets along with plenum pan & gasket, should I go ahead with head gaskets since that is just 1 more step? 176669 on the clock. I did a head set a several years ago on a Lumina van with great success. Took the heads to my machine shop for the valve job while it was apart.
