Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
I have a bad valve cover gasket, misfiring and lifter taping.
What do you mean with 'bad valve cover' ?I asume it is leaking oil.it means that the rubber seal is not sealing anymore,it has gone hard.tighten the cover bolts sometimes seals it for a while.to get to the rubber seals the inlet manifold has to be unbolted and moved,a fairly involved procedure but easy to do if you have a manual and standard handtools.The misfiring is likely stray arching of the coils .remove the top plastic cover of the motor andlook when it is very dark [like lightsof in your garage] and look for sparking.If so ,replace sparkplugs or/and leads.[remove inlet manifold also]Tapping lifter,works with oil,try engine oil flush and/or change oil brande.if problem persist replace lifter,lifter undervalve cover

If your asking what to do about it you will have to remove it and fit a new gasket this can be relatively easy if your good with engines if your not this can be extremely hard id take it to mechanic to fix but the costs can be in the thousands for a gasket replacemeant because of the amount of work and time it takes to strip the engine to get to the gasket
