ps. sounds like you found the leak then from the cam seal, good news.
14 mm socket is needed.
it was the cam seal. The person who replaced it about 2 weeks ago didn't do it right. He was a crook, to be more precise. This time, i fixed the cam seal myself. i found a gouge on the replaced cam seal from 2 weeks ago, perhaps, an indication of sabotage.
Another good reason I prefer to fix my own car.
one advice on the T-handle flex ratchet: you could some thick tape on the area where it bends. This way the ratchet won't bend on you while you are reaching up to the motor mount. I will try that in about a week.
