    i have a little oil between the head and block, not badm it's wet, not dripping or anything. also theres somekinda oil drit mixed around the header on the motor.
    i just fixed the cam seal leak three weeks ago.
    i check the water some rust in the water, but no oil. car runs hard. it has metal head gasket.
    could it be blown head glasket?

    Well none of thoes pictures are of where the head gasket is, so I can't answer that quastion. It looks like you might be leaking from the valve cover gasket. It is an easy fix and a common problem. Get a new gasket, and some liquid gasket for where the cover goes over the cam caps.

    A few months ago I had a leaky vtec solenoid gasket. At first the leak looked like it was coming from the head gasket, but I traced it up to the solenoid gasket. Check that too.
