    Rocker cover

    I have just replaced the rocker cover gasket as it was leaking a bit near the air box, I have put a new gasket on with some gasket seal, tightened it down, let it dry overnight, I have just drove 42 miles and it is now leaking all over the place,
    Any ideas
    Cheers

    Firstly, what engine is this on?

    Secondly, where did you put the gasket seal?
    Caddy MK2 1.9 SDI (ALH swap incoming), Seat Inca 1.9 SDI, Static Polo Estate 1.9 TDI (AHU), Aired Golf MK4 1.9 PD130

    I use these one piece gaskets. You need to use different bots to hold down. i generally put a too long bolt in with a nut and washer on shank, tighten bolt home then tighten rocker with the nut.
