Hey peeps, I had a leaking rocker cover gasket so ended up replacing both sides along with the spark plugs while I was at it. All went well but upon restating the motor I have a check engine light on. Thinking it may have been something i did when checking for leaks. I started up without the air filter unit on so I could see if any oil leaked out.

Anyone know if this might be what has caused it? Or if it might be something else? Is there an easy way to clear it?

Thanks

clear the code and see if it comes back?

 

As an aside - how was it replacing those with the engine in?

Yeh I don't have a reader at the moment, might need to pick one up.

It was an absolute pain in the ass! Wouldn't attempt it with the covers on but as I had them off it gave a little more clearance. Not a fun job though!

Will the code not clear with a battery disconnect for a certain period of time? Otherwise I believe there is some kind of ignition sequence you can perform to clear codes. Not sure if it is applicable for the B4 though.
