What is this on the M119
What are these two circled things? Do they supposed to have a gasket? Mine are covered in oil. I wonder if it's those things or valve cover gaskets.
Also, when I put ignition key to position 2, I get a weird noise coming from under the HFM. Sounds like an electric motor that is about to die. Any idea what could it be?
Googled some more and looks like those are solenoids for the cams and there should be some kind of a sealant rather than a gasket. Can someone confirm?
