    I am a girl and need to do the work myself. Could someone explain to me what I have to remove to get to the valve cover gasket? I have a Kia Sephia. I know how to get to the spark plugs. What do I do next.

Yes you are right also use a little gasket sealer to hold the gasket in place so it make the job easier to put the cover back on.

What would cause the oil to build up on valve cover gasket center bolt 2004 PT Cruiser 4.0l engine?


I'm pretty sure Chrysler never put a 4.0L engine in a PT Cruiser (V6? V8?). And since the valve cover gasket is located between the valve cover and the cylinder head, there is no bolt that holds just the valve cover gasket in place - all the bolts hold the valve cover in place. If there is excess oil around one of those bolts, you have a break in the gasket (or a bad gasket if the gasket is for the bolt only) or the bolts are not tightened to specification.

What do you torhce valve cover to on a 1997 acura 2.5 tl


First off, make sure you use a new valve cover gasket and replace and dogged bolts. Tighten them just enough to squeeze the gasket. The purpose is only to keep oil inside the engine and not leak out the valve covers... you aren't bolting down a head gasket here! Use an opposite pattern across the valve cover(s) to tighten them evenly.
