SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

Each step involves starting at the center two bolts of the head and alternately tightening in a criss-cross pattern, ending with the bolts on the outer edge of the head.

SOURCE: how do you install a block heater on a chevy aveo 2006?

A block heater is installed in one of the freeze plug ports in your block. Drain your cooling system. Then drill a small hole i the center of the freeze plug and screw a self tapping screw into the hole. You can the use a claw hammer or something similar to pull the freeze plug. Then you just install the block heater in the freeze plug's place. Refill your cooling system and let it get up to full temperature checking carefully for leaks. Please rate my answer.

We took off the breather cover on a 2004 chevy trailblazer and there was water in it

Sounds like you may have a bad valve cover gasket. same thing was happening on my wife's Chevy Aveo. Valve cover gasket was worn and when I replaced it and cleaned plug wells, issue was resolved.As for the breather, I really wouldn't know why there's water in there.Only thing I would suggest there is to check your antifreeze level. Is it water from the antifreeze?

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

2008 chevy aveo cover gasket

Replace the one fastener. Typically you don't have a torque sequence on a valve cover.

Keep an eye on the oil leaks. Problems like this one are why we mechanics don't make enough money. Everyone wants to fix it themselves and we go hungry because it looks easier that it really is. (Not being rude, just stating facts)
I hope you fixed your issue, and don't have any further problems. I would recommend taking it to a pro if you continue having issues. Something seemingly small like this can snowball quick.

Take it from a pro who has been there, done that, have too many teeshirts. :-)

I have a 95 dodge ram 3500. It has an Oil leak on the drivers side top of engine between the block and and the diesel fuel system. I have replaced 2 lines by the power steering pump, But that wasnt the...

The oil pump is located inside the engine. Down in the oil pan. It sounds like you need to replace your valve cover gasket. I would make sure to buy Fel Pro. They are the best gaskets in my opinion.

I hope this helps you! If so please click YES! Thanks!

We change the spark plug of my aveo 2004, and we found out that there is a oil leak on the third cylinder, what may cause the problem?

The valve cover has rubber o-ring seals that fit into the valve cover and seal oil out of the spark plug wells. Over time, they get hard and shrink, allowing oil to enter the plug wells from the top of the engine. You need to remove the valve cover and replace the valve cover gasket and o-ring seals. The seals should come with the valve cover gasket set.

Hope this helps,

Roughly how much would it to fix my 1999 chevy sub. V8 2wd. if water got in the engine? It has not over heated. And the water went bad also.

not much. buy some lucas oil engine flush fo the oil system,and run it thru. flush your cooling systemas well. this is all contingent that you fixed the problem that caused this in the first place. if you have...then around 50 bucks.

Hi, I have a 2006 chevy aveo and I was recently told that I needed to replace the valve cover gasket because it's leaking oil. How do I replace a valve cover gasket on a 2006 chevy aveo? Much...

Its easy. I did mine about a month ago. You need to take off all the bolts on the top part of the motor. there are some tubes on the left side of the motor by pushing them out of the way... you take the old one off and replace it with the new one making sure its aligned and the you put it back on.. the bolts need to be hand tightened kinda as tight as you would do your tires.

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.

How to install a intake on a big block chevy corvette

That depends on type of gasket being used. Some fel-pro gaskets have sealant built into the gaskets, I have used some sealant to help hold gaskets in place around bolt holes during installation but that's not always necessary...and yes there is a torque sequence for intake manifolds...example given in link.

The balancer should be torqued also...85 - 90 Ft-lbs if I remember correctly. The balancer should be all the way back when completely torgued, if not you may need to check for clearance problems.
