Go buy a valve cover gasket and put it on. Mark and pull plug wires, remove valve cover bolts. Remove old gasket {the gasket has the grommets on it} and replace. No need for anything else.

    For a diagram go to a ford dealer parts department and get a copy of the valve cover. For a "diafram"- {diaphragm}, you can get those from a physician or a gynecologist. Good luck!

How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a 1996 Ford Ranger w/ 3.0L Engine?


The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
  2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
  3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
  4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
  5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

To install:
  1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
  2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
  3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

  1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.

2000 ford focus oil leak drip off rear top of oil pan. oil pan gasket or valve cover gasket?


Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.

How do i replace value cover gaskets on a 2001 cadillac deville


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.
