Sometimes the tappet covers warp on CX\īs...The little round gasket (around the spark plug hole) could be leaking. It\īll drain out through the little water drain holes that run to the outside of the heads. It can look like its drooling from the head, but its just a little drool from the tappet covers.I\īd wash the engine down with soapy water while its cold, try some gasket glue on the tappet gaskets, then fire it up until its warm. You\īll get a clear picture of whats leaking in/on your engine. I hope that helps ya out, and good luck! :D
