I'd hazard a yes. My POS had a leaking plenum. I'm still trying
To determine if it has a cracked head.

Oil and water are good and not mixed? I would change the plenum
With the Hughes unit. Be careful to not use power tools to clean
The manifold to plenum lip when you get her apart. Also on the
Hughes site there is a write up on taking out the fan and shroud
And I say do that as it helps tremendously.
