SOURCE: Valve cover removal

See the cover, there are 8 or more screws, maybe one or two connect to a small part, but all of them should be on the cover, just loss all of them, you will get the cover out, before you change the gasket, clean the surface of both side, cover and the head, then use the grease instead of glue.slowly and make sure it is stright to cover it and screw back, do not make to tight, it is going to break the gasket and also do not maker too loss, it will be leaking. you have to do just right.

hope this can help you, if yo have any question, post it.

SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: 1994 Toyota Corolla - Valve COver Gasket Replacement

You need an aftermarket serviice manual from Haynes or Chilton. They will have that kind of info.
I know of no car (I don't know them all) where that is needed and depending on the cover material (sheet steel or cast), could lead to warping and new leaks. I always use a thin film of silicone whether it is specified or not and there are torque specs for ALL valve covers I have ever seen.

SOURCE: 1997 Camry Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

My oil light is on on my 2002 toyato camery it has oil and it has atapping sound when idle what causes this


It has low oil pressure. The tapping sound is the sound of the hydraulic valve lifters not getting enough oil.

Replace the oil and the oil filter. Make sure to put in at least 4 quarts of oil (check manual to see how much is required). I suggest using oil designed for high mileage cars.

If it still does this you probably need to replace the oil pump which is a job for a mechanic.

Oil leaking from rear valve cover gasket & getting burnt oil smell thru air vents inside vehicle


Thi depends on whether you want to do it yourself or not. It's an easy fix, just get the gasket and remove the valve cover. It's tidious but doable. Otherwise, get ready to spend $150-200 for a shop.

Can i change rocket cover gaskets without pulln my engine out


Yes most definatly. Here are the steps, and if you find this info helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated for the free advice. These are also known as valve covers.
  • Disconnect the breather hose, which, depending on the engine in your vehicle, may be attached to the valve cover. Remove the retainer bolts for the valve covers. Depending on which engine you have, you might have as few as two bolts or as many as eight.

  • 2

    Lift the valve cover off the engine. If it does not want to come off easily, gently tap it with the rubber hammer. Clean the gasket-mating surfaces using the scraper and a shop rag.

  • 3

    Coat the gasket-mating surface of the valve cover with a thin layer of RTV silicone. Install the gasket onto the cover, then press it into the silicone. Install the valve cover.

  • 4

    Tighten the bolts to 5 foot-lbs. of torque for the 1.2-liter engine, and 4 foot-lbs. of torque for the 1.6-, 1.8-, .22-, 2.5-, 2.7- and 3.3-liter engines. Reattach the breather hose.

    1998 catera 3.0 #1 spark plug well fills with engine oil causing the plug to miss fire check engine light goes on after shuting engine off for 1-2 hours the problem goes away only to return after driving...


    You will have to remove the valve cover and replace the gasket and seals on the cover and the spark plug tubes. It is not to bad unless it is the rear cover which can be some work.

    How to replace valve cover gasket on a 2002 stratus 3.0 liter engine


    i don't know that vehicle very well... but there are usually bolts/screws that hold them in place. 4 to 6 of them per cover. sometimes the spark plug holes have giant nuts that hold the cover in place.
