SOURCE: 2000 VW jetta; what is the torque for valve cover and plenum

I briefly looked online and did not see any info direct6ly relating to the torque spec of the cover bolts. I would guess around 15 ft lbs.--not too much--the head is aluminium--best way to go is to walk up to the service counter of the VW dealer and ask him to provide that information. You have the car and they built it!

    Oil in spark plug well 02 nissan maxima what could cause this

    On the DOHC: The Spark Plug Tube Seals (Washers) on the Valve Cover has developed a leak.
    Install new seals.
    Remove the Valve Cover to Install the Seals.
    If the Valve Cover Gasket have not been replaced recently, go ahead and replace them as well, making sure you clean thoroughly BOTH surfaces before installing any new Seal Washers and Gasket.
