    Also ordered this little screw jack to see if it will help me press this plug into place. Looks like the last thing I need is some high temp RTV sealant.

    Man, I opened the thread with mild palpitations thinking Dane is selling?

    Glad you found the part. What an odd thing to happen. Good luck with fix brother.

    I'm having doubts about this diagnosis. Dane, have you confirmed the "blind plug" is missing/leaking? Not just a bad valve cover gasket leaking oil into the cavity? Aren't those "freeze" plugs which would be antifreeze not oil? Which spark plug had oil on it?

    Actually.... Great point. I replaced all of the plugs and none had oil on them.

    Could be vcg.

    I tell you... I went big or went home. I ended up tapping 10mm 1.5 threads into the hole and plugged it with a bolt.

    All codes gone.... Runs like a dream.

    I'll do the vcg complete what's needed though.

    The plug situation is weird because we don't know when it popped out and it looks like oil sprays onto interior fender well (ish) area when the previous plugs I was building kept popping out.

    Tap going in



    The bolt
