Did you just install the headers and now your having this issue ?
If so, are you sure the tube is all the way in the block ?
There is a bracket that comes off the dipstick tube and mounts to one o the header bolts,
is that installed correctly ?

@Jatt92GT we would like to help, but need more info about what changed or is going on. I’m wondering not only about the timing of the headers, but if the tube is bent.
