If you have your intake manifold over your valve covers you need to remove them. once they are off carefully disconnect as many hoses from the covers as you can and try to mark them so you can remember where they go. next you take your ratchet and remove all of the bolts from the valve cover. Take it off and get as much crud off of the surfaces that the gaskets seat onto as you can. next you take a tube of BLUE RTV and apply a thin bead to all of the surfaces that the gasket will seat into. Put gasket onto it's place on engine block, then affix the valve covers on top of that. Replace bolts and intake manifold if applicable and you are done. Note; follow instructions on the RTV tube or you will develop leaks all over the place.

How to replace a valve cover gasket on a 1991 cadillac deville

this can be a rather time consuming task, depending on your mechanical talents. if you need to do this for an oil leak, you might have a friemd or a mechanic do this for you. The actuall job its self is relatively easy. just remove the valve cover, clean any remanents of the old valve cover gasket. Clean the surface of bothe the valve cover and the head and put the new gasket in place and mount. The real problem in most cases is getting to it to do the work. there is no telling how much stuff you have to remove to get to the valve cover.
good luck with this.

My 2001 Cadillac Deville got head gasket leak, how can I put in the Head Gasket Leak Sealer in to radiator?

Hello: You add the sealer to the tank on the passenger side under the hood. I don't recommend this as a proper repair. You may create problems with reducing the flow of coolant through the radiator. The best way is to replace the head gaskets. The tank has a radiator cap on it.
