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: i need to replace the valve cover gasket on my voltswagon jetta

you probably mean the valve head gasket.

In this case this is serious work and you should contact a local VW dealership or mechanic and have them do this work for you to insure a job well done. If you simply mean your Valve cover, then this is no big deal and can be done by taking out the 4 screws found at the corners of the valve cover and then simply lifting the cover free and replacing it with a new one/tightening the screws back down.

hope this helps :)

SOURCE: 1997 Camry Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

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: 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.

Valve cover leaks


Try replacing the valve cover gasket. If the valve cover gasket still leaks oil after replacement try adding standard 1/4 lock washers to the top of the valve cover bolts. I have a 2005 Suzuki Reno and had to replace the valve cover gasket several times. Adding the washers tightened the seal of the gasket and prevented any leaking,

I am leaking oil from my BMW but I can't see where it is coming from do you have any suggestions


Did you check around the upper timing chain cover gaskets? I found that these should be replaced along with the valve cover gaskets, otherwise there will still be leaks. They are easy to replace if you have been able to replace the valve cover gaskets.

Smoke comin from top rocker cover smell like burnin oil


Could the smoke be coming from the exhaust manifold on the passenger side of the engine? When the valve cover starts to leak, it is common for the oil to leak down and burn on the outside of the exhaust manifold.
Replacing a valve cover gasket is not difficult or expensive, and it is common for BMW valve cover gaskets to get brittle and shrink and start leaking every 10 years or so. My wife's 330 needed a new valve cover gasket at 6 years.

Oil on the spark plugs/failing cylinder?


The important question is - oil on the top half of the spark plug, or oil on the bottom (fire) end of the spark plug?
Oil on the top end of the plug means that your valve cover gasket is leaking. This is a common problem. BMW valve cover gaskets get hard and shrink and have to be replaced about every 10 years. It is an easy do-it-yourself repair, but it can take a while to dig the old hardened gasket out of the valve cover without scratching it. Just be patient.
If the bottom (fire) end of the plug is wet, either the plug is not firing due to a failed coil or some other electrical problem, or you have bigger problems in that cylinder. A compression test is in order.
