Default Can it solve the problem

So have a lil oil seeping from head gasket front of motor driver side into the valley out side of motor its only like maybe 3 inches rest is clean.



If i was to re torque the head in that corner could that solve my leak

Thats highly unusual. Are you sure that it's not the valve cover gasket or PCV leaking? As for the question, no, don't mess with the bolts, if it is leaking, you need to change the gasket.

I agree with JC, look into replacing your gaskets.
