Valve Cover Gasket Replacement 91 Honda Accord

I was wondering if I could get a step by step procedure and possibly diagrams to replacing the valve cover gasket. Is it a simple job? I have never really worked under the hood. It seems simple enough but there is a lot hidden under the valve cover.

Dont worry about what is underneath the valve cover, you will not need to touch anything there. This is as easy as putting gas in your car.. k here we go:
Your gonna need a 10millimeter, or a 13millimeter socket wrench. 2 cans of carborator cleaner. You're gonna open your hood as far open as you can. You're gonna remorve your throttle and cruise control cables which are located on top. Move them out of the way. If you have a ground cable connect it to the valve cover, remove it also. Then remove all bolts that hold the valve cover on. Once all bolts are removed, (loosen up bolts until your valve cover can be removed) sometimes the valve cover will be stuck on, you need to jolt or hit with a rubber hammer to break the seal loose. Once seal is broken loose remove valve cover and plave outside vehicle. At this point look at the head, make sure there is not old gasket material or silecone residue left on it, then do the same to the valve cover itself. Use the carborator cleanner to clean all the gunk and **** inside the valve cover After cleaning, place new gasket and distributer gasket onto the valve cover and place back onto vehicle. Tighten bolts until they are snugg (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLTS!!) After all the bolt are in snugg, start from the inside bolt and retighten working your way to the outside bolts CLOCKWISE. Place the throttle cable back on and start car, check for leaks, if you see no leaks change your oil to make sure no dirt got into the oil. and then you're good.. let me know how it worked out for you. ;)

I need to replace the vtec gasket on a 1997 honda accord ex. I purchased it but i need to know where does it go?


If your talking about the valve cover gasket you need to remove the valve covers to install it. That usually involves removing the spark plug wires as they go in the top of the valve cover and then removing about 8 nuts, it lifts off and you put the new gasket in and replace everything, don't over tighten the nuts.

My 1991 Honda Accord is dropping oil onto the hot cover in the front. Also, the service engine light soon comes on after driving about 10 to 15 minutes. What possibly can be wrong? I think the cover...


You have a bad valve cover gasket. If I remember correctly the spark plug wires go thru the valve cover? If that is true a loose valve cover will leak motor oil on the plug wires possibly causing the check engine/maint light. I would start with the valve cover and a tune up. That may solve all your issues.

My 1992 honda honda accord ex is leaking oil on the plugs after changing valve cover gasketand seals and plugs


You'll have to take the valve cover off again. There must be a piece of old gasket still under there somewhere, or your gasket isn't seated properly. Make sure the head is completely clean, and the valve cover.

I have a 95 honda accord with the non vetec motor. I recently replaced the spark plugs and valve cover gasket. After driving a couple of days, i noticed oil coming out from the back of the valve cover...


the valve cover gasket may not be seated right if you remove the valve cover check the gasket 4 damage if so replace with new one and make sure if there is a grove for the gasket to sit in that it is in all the way round , applying a little gasket glue on the valve cover befor fitting the gasket can help to keep the gasket in place when you refit to the engine
