SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket leaking

When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.

SOURCE: replace valve cover gasket

I have the same problem on a 2003 Town & Country. The cover for the front 3 cylinders is quite straight forward, but in order to do the rear cylinders I believe you are going to have to remove the cowling below the windshield. You will need a gear puller to remover the windshield wipers first, then remove the cowling. Than should give you more room to work. It's still not going to be easy, but it sure beats paying hundreds of $$$$ in labor charges.

SOURCE: Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???

most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

I can't remove the valve cover on my 99 kia sportage.


Remove Mass Air Flow pipe from Valve cover, then detach hose at rear of valve cover, and hose on left hand side.Remove Plastic Spark Plug cover, and remove coils (leave plugs). Remove all Bolts from inside plug cover (x8) and 9 from the outside (the last one is from behind the timing belt cover. The rear ones are tough, as there is little space to work.Then gently remove the valve cover, you may have to divert the spark cables and small hoses behind the Transmission fluid dip stick.Remove and refit the seal / gasket, and ensure there is a little oil on the top of the block when you replace the valve cover, just tighten bolts to hand tight fit, (you may need to put a piece of newspaper between the screwdriver/wrench handle and your hand to gain sufficient grip.Reverse the process and you should be good to go.

Low oil pressure due to oil-caked particles falling into oil flow of head


His fault. He should have used a vacuum to collect the gasket pieces while he was cleaning the gasket surface. The engine will have to be well flushed, including clearing all of the oil flow passages.

    • 2 Disconnect the left hand side coil wires and spark plug wires. Remove the spark plug wires, valve cover bolts and the valve cover. Unplug the electrical connections from the intake manifold runner control actuator. Unfasten the actuator retaining the screws, right bank heated oxygen sensor front and rear.
    • 3 Remove the heated positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve. Remove the heated oxygen sensor plug and the Differential Pressure Feedback EGR (DPFE) sensor. Disconnect the ignition coil with power transistor and its wiring and bracket. Remove the valve cover bolts, the valve cover and the old valve cover gasket. Clean the valve cover seating area with automotive engine cleaner and place the new gasket in the gasket seating area.
    • 4 Replace the parts that were removed and disconnected by reversing the steps. Replace the valve cover gasket and tighten the bolts, in sequence, ensuring not to over tighten. Put back the ignition coil with power transistor and its wiring and bracket, the heated positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve, the heated oxygen sensor plug and the Differential Pressure Feedback EGR (DPFE) sensor.
    • 5 Add oil to the car. Start the car and let it run at idle for a while to check for leaks..

Steps to change valve cover gasket


VERY EASY! YOU'LL HAVE TO UNBOLT THE VALVE COVER, AND REMOVE IT! CLEN IT COMPLETELY OUT, AND SCRAP OFF ANY LEFT OVER GASKET ON THE COVER! THEN BE SURE THERE IS NO LEFT OVER GASKET ON THE TOP OF THE HEAD THAT IT SITS ON! INSTALL THE NEW GASKET ON THE VALVE COVER USING A GASKET ADHESIVE! THIS WILL HOLE IT IN PLACE WHILE YOU PUT IT BACK ON THE HEAD! MAKE SURE ALL THE BOLT HOLES LINE UP ON THE GASKET TO VALVE COVER, AND PLACE IT BACK ON THE HEAD, THEN TIGHTEN THE BOLTS DOWN EASY FROM THE CENTER, OUT TO THE BACK, THEN TO THE FRONT! START THE CAR, AND CHECK FOR LEAKS! IF NONE-U R DONE! GOOD JOB!!!!!

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

How to replace a valve cover gasket 2003 hyundai santa fe


Just take a picture of it with digital camera or phone. And start removing wires and hoses until they are all out of way of cover. Then remove the bolts all way around cover and pull straight up and it will come right off. If not use a flat head screw driver to prise it off. Clean old gasket off of valvecover and engine. then put it bak together. Tighten bolts slowly, start with ones in center ov it and work your way out. Just finger tight. Then snug, then torque em down. Not too tight as if tostrip the bolt or break it off. Cause it be very expensive. also write down everywhere each wire go's unless you can remember
