I bought a junkyard engine for my 2009 EXL. I went to replace the plugs and found the ignition coils covered in oil. Both banks are soaked.
I'm guessing this was a PVC failure. The upper ignition coil seals are swollen beyond use, so I'm guessing this engine ran this way for a while.
I see other treads include comments about valve cover gaskets being damaged by PVC failure.
So, should I fix a bunch of things and use the engine, or conclude that it isn't worth installing?
