Well, got delayed on WOF until today.
Driver front wheel bearing adjust only fail. Just had him on hoist and sorted that.
However, not convinced last wheel alignment was good, both very worn inside edges, narrow pass,so 2 new Turanzas next week.

Definite oil leak at back of engine. He is due oil change so while getting filter tomorrow willget some Stop Leak and see if new oil and stopper buy me some time. Could do without taking engine out again.

Maybe the leak is from the half-moon part of the cam cover gasket? Definitely would try that first.

Wonky wheel bearings can lead to weird tire wear patterns too so maybe that's the issue?

BTW I run Kumho's Ecsta Platinums - very happy with them too. Second set. Front pass side got ruined on set 1 by running with an f'd up front wheel bearing.

Ah, should have made clear that oil leak at back is only under the engine. Now have stop leak for rear crank seal in and done 1200kms, will get up on hoist to check shortly if any better.
