Rebile gone wrong

My jdm h22a was rebuilt and port polished, back in 09' Now everything you can imagin in the top end is leeking. Im saying poor work on the car is the problem. But i cant trace down the shop that did it. So would there be any other reason for EVERY gasket in the top end to leak????

Is there any place in can recieve a complete gasket kit for the top end???

Title is supposed to say" Rebuild gone wrong.
If you aint JDM why try?

Re: Rebile gone wrong

Yea, Honda makes a Head Gasket set with all gaskets/seals. I am sure the after market does as well. One big reason for everything to leak is the PCV valve can be plugged. If it is plugged the engine can not breathe and it builds up crankcase pressure and blows out all the seals. Pretty common on poorly maintained engines (there is more to maintaining an engine than changing oil every 3K miles).

Where is the leak coming from? Is the valave cover gasket leaking and running down the engine making it look like everything else is leaking? Cam seals leaking? Distributor seal leaking(did they change that when they did port/polish?) The distribotor seal and valve cover gasket can leak a TON of oil in a short amount of time.
