    Default Stem Seals - Who can South East?

    Dreaded stem seals have gone, cars a bit smokey on cold start sometimes, using oil at a faster rate. No leaks and it's not when moving so doubt it's the turbo.


    WG Motorworks are fully booked for ages and I need it doing ASAP as I am selling the Arctic.

    Anyone know who can do this with head on in south east?

    Maidenhead/Slough/Windsor/Reading area (M4/M40)

    A lot of places can obviously do it, but not all have the tool. Not found a trusty one as of yet. One more to try. Wanted some recommendations if anyone has any?

    If you can make the trip to Birmingham mate go to R and C motorworks. He does stem seals with retainers for £120.
    Cheapest around by far has people come from as far as Scotland lol.
    Check out his Facebook page he's a top bloke and it's well worth the journey.

    He uses special retainers and springs over the top of the old stem seals which cures the leak and makes sure it won't happen again. Does the job in an hour usually, hence why it's so cheap. Think he does it in his own time after work so you'll probably have to go down in the evening
