    the solenoid... mine was doing this too... make sure that the valve cover seals nice and tight, and that all the bolts are tight there by the solenoid.

    it pools right on the head gasket... right? it's either that or your head is slightly warped.

    what did you do to the valves exactly?

    and use big motor words to feed my fantasy :)
    lol

    but seriously? did you send the head out? or just do valve seals? or did you relap them?

    well, i fucked the head over. somehow a part of the distributor came loose, the timing jumped 2 teeth on the gears... the car just shut down... somehow the cam got knocked to the side... and since the car died, but motor kept going, i bent 5 valves pretty badly. they took the cam and looked under the scope. it had a 6 inch hairline fracture in it... so that was crap. they noticed the head was warped... pretty badly.

    so, he decided to fix it. a tow truck rolled up to the shop, on the back, an ITR that was hit in the rear. so, he took the valves, valve springs, and retainers... (valvetrain) :D and installed that. ported the head, mildly polished it, and replaced the intake cam. i borrowed a distributor from mike (B16 - i must have about 4 parts from his del sol on my car), and replaced the timing belt.... now she runs like a god damn phoenix. that motor has come back from the dead already... over 3 times. it's a damn cat. i got 6 lives left.

    if you're concerned, then, replace the head gasket, and have your head checked.
