SOURCE: how do i remove and

Hi diane hensle. I hope I can help with your problem. First, you want to remove the PCV valve hose and any other hoses that may be running to your valve cover. Mark their positions with masking tape so you can remember where they all go. Then, remove the 3 or 4 bolts in the top of the valve cover holding it in position. When these are removed, it may take a smart whack on the side of the valve cover to dislodge it. Just don't hit it TOO hard, as these are aluminum. Once the valve cover is off, remove the gasket and clean off both mating surfaces. Be careful to drop as little debris as possible into the head as this will soil your oil. Replace it with the new gasket, replace the valve cover, and tighten the bolts going from center outward. They don't have to be particularly tight, say snug plus 2 turns. If they are too tight, the valve cover will pinch the gasket and cause oil leaks and air intrusion. Then replace the PCV hose and any others you may have disconneced. Hope this helped.

ok make sure to check or replace the unexpensive pcv valve
if that one is cloged it will coause all kind of leaks even whit new seals

and on the head gaskets problem i will recomend to get your radiator serviced or replaced because 90% of the mechanics check your radiator for cloged lines but they always do it at the top and by gravity all the garbache acumulate on the bottom, if you don't beleive it ask your mechanic hos does he inspect your radiator

SOURCE: After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,

Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

What is cost to replace valve cover gasket on 2002 dodge neon?


To replace the valve cover gasket shouldn't be that expensive. Although those cars are known for blown head gaskets, so I would have them look carefully at the back of the engine for an oil leak. If it is leaking oil out of the head, it is only a matter of time before the head gasket will be pushing anti-freeze. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

I have an 85 Ford F150 with a 302 FI. I am replacing the valve cover gaskets in it. I tore down and rebuilt yesterday. Leaking more now than when I started. Will be tearing down and rebuilding again...


usually due to overtightening the bolts and distorting the rocker cover flkange. Torque is very low. straighten flange and use a gasket sealer on each side of gasket and do not tighten more than 10 ft lbs.

Oil in spark plug well 02 nissan maxima what could cause this


On the DOHC: The Spark Plug Tube Seals (Washers) on the Valve Cover has developed a leak.
Install new seals.
Remove the Valve Cover to Install the Seals.
If the Valve Cover Gasket have not been replaced recently, go ahead and replace them as well, making sure you clean thoroughly BOTH surfaces before installing any new Seal Washers and Gasket.

Let me me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me on FixYa.com!

Cant find pcv valve on 2000 buick lasabre


The PCV valve is hidden on top of the intake manifold down in a little enclosure. There are two small bolts holding the PCV cover. Often there is a fairly large vacuum line coming into the enclosure. Remove the cover and pull the PCV valve that sits down into a gasket.

I have a 2002 Ford crew cab with 5.4 triton .I have alot of oil on top of the intake .What are possible causes?


Most likely if it is only oil, it is most likely valve cover gaskets. If you see any antifreeze in the fluid then it could be the intake manifold gasket as well.

I have a broken Front Gasket Seal on the 2002 Ford F150 Is this a lengthy repair, should I expect a mechanic to charge a lot? How long should the repair take when done by a professional?


If you are talking about the timing chain gasket or the front seal, or even the oil pan gasket, it shouldn't take more than a day. If you know which gasket, a quick call to your local repair center will yield you a close estimate. I wouldn't think it should cost much more than $300 or so, but I might be wrong on that...

ON 2002 ALTIMA 2.5 I FOUND OIL IN ONE TUBE WHERE SPARK PLUG IS WHAT SEAL ON VALVE COVER OR PLUG TOP SEAL WOULD CAUSE THIS...CAR DOES NOT LEAK OR BURN OIL AT ALL


I would try snugging down all the valve cover bolts before replacing anything. A valve cover gasket kit should have the grommets and gaskets necessary to repair this if you find no loose bolts.

Valve cover gasket


valve cover gaskets are in expensive, like 20 bucks, a books that can tell you how to do it would be 25-50 and you will be able to use the book for other things.. there are usually a few long bolts going straight through your valve cover, jus take them off remove the old gasket and put new one in put them back in.. however tightening the valve cover bolts will be the only tricky part.. you may need a torque wrench and have to refer to the book to know exatly how tight they should be.. but as a rule of thumb 80-90 ft-lb of tork is usually used.. be careful when doing this cuz if you put the wrong torque on it will bend your valve covers or posibbly not seal correctly
