i did an oil change on my 91 1.6 miata yesterday and i realized that there is ALOT of oil leaking from the top of the back of the motor, is it common fo that just to be a VC gasket or is there a gasket between the head and the ignition?

You are welcome OP, there is a vast amount of info on this site and other sites.

If you don't know a word we will help, but try to search all of your problems first.

Yea I have some slight leaking in the same area and within the next few weeks plan on doing the timing so all of this will be address at the same time. Super excited.

If you do have a leaky CAS make sure you get it addressed before oil saturates your heater hose and make it burst. Happened over here. :hello kitty:

Yea since I am doing the rad at the same time I decided to get all new hoses also. Nothing crazy just oem replacement type stuff but so worth it.

It's a Mazda piece. That was the only place I could find it. It was $5 at my local dealership.
