I finally found the leak in my engine. It is coming from the Timing Inspection Plug. The hex head cover is fine, but it looks like it has a copper washer for sealing. Don't you heat those up so they are malleable, and then reattach so they make a good seal? Or is that only copper gaskets? Or is this once again another job for grey permatex?

You do not need to heat the washer.

First try remove the plug, inspect for damage to the mating surfaces. If no damage then clean all parts and re-tighten.

If still no joy, replace the washer.
