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.

Xterra 05 bypass valve in the oil pump stuck - oil valve goes up and down

sounds to me like your rear timing cover gasket is blown out, and your oil pressure varies due to the leak. you will have to remove front cover and check the oil passage covers for gasket missing or blown. pricy repair, time consuming. have done dozens of those.

I suggest that you start by going to AutoZone and getting a free diagnostic scan. A scan is the only way to realistically pinpoint problems in post 1983 vehicles.

Oil leaking from under the front of the motor. Have had both manifold gaskets changed, yet still have a leak. Now the starter is full of oil and I have to replace it

the manifold gaskets role in an oil leak? oil under the car i would be thinking about a front or rear crankshaft seal or the oil pan, or the oil pressure sender unit. if there is oil on the sides of the engine i would look to the valve cover gaskets.

Need to change valve cover gasket

the valve cover gasket should be simple enough.

1. Locate the valve cover, and clear the way for it to come out.
2. Loosen the valve cover bolts in an even fashion.
3. clean and scrape the gasket surface on both the head, and the valve cover.
4. replace in opposite order.

I have been told that I have a valve cover leak. Will it harm the motor if I continue to drive it? How much does it cost to repai? The model is 2000 Nissan Xterra

You can do the repair yourself. Your valve covers leaking will result in you losing oil because it's not making it's way to the oil pan. You probably won't hurt the engine if you keep the oil level constant, but you can replace the gaskets yourself. It's a bit of a job, but not too bad. You'll proably have to remove the intake manifolds and replace these gaskets before the valve covers. The valve covers are just plastic covers for the valves-one big box. Put new gaskets in place and reinstall the reverse of removal.
