New, non-genuine cam cover gasket, Mazda MX5 & Eunos Roadster 1.8 mk1 & mk2, 1993-2000.
Note this will NOT fit the mk2.5 1.8 with variable valve timing from 2001 on.
Is there oil down #4 spark plug hole? Oily stains down the sides of the cylinder head? If so, this is the usual culprit.
Although these are not genuine Mazda gaskets, they are the best aftermarket ones we've found. not too thin like most 'pattern' ones and are a good fit. Don't forget to put a little blob of silicone in each of the 90 deg corners at the end of the camshafts.
Note: Most cam cover gasket leaks are caused by lazy fitting. Remove the coil pack so the cam cover can be lowered vertically down onto the head, do not be tempted to slide it under the coil pack as the gasket will get kinked.

Service and speed of delivery as always excellent. Unfortunately, the gasket is passing oil after only 3 months of being fitted professionally. I've had to order a genuine one to replace it. My advice, spend a little more and get a genuine one first time.
