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.

I don't have experience with this engine but guess you won't have to remove it for valve cover gasket work but perhaps can lift it a bit [not by hand!] after loosening engine mounts.

ALL DATA time to R&R valve cover gaskets both sides is 2.1 hours. you will need to remove brackets and connectors on either side, It will also help to take the upper plenium bolts out but not completly pull the plenium. If you don't have a lot of mechanical experiance and some basic tools. you may want to consider to have a local a shop to perform this service for you after you get a estimate. RON.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket leaking

When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.

Simple steps to replace the Valve Cover Gaskets on a Jaguar XJ8?


Replace the valve cover gasket if the valve cover gaskets are leaking or if they're worn. The procedure is as follows:--
1)First carefully remove the nuts holding the valve cover to the engine head.2
2)Then pull the valve cover off from the engine head .
3)You can use flat-tip screwdriver to remove the valve cover.
4)It will be very dirty inside so you will have to clean the mating surfaces on both the engine head and the valve cover.
5)Take your time and clean it completely.

6)You can use a bead of RTV sealant on both mating surfaces.

7)Then carefully seat the gasket to top of the engine head.
8)The gasket can only be fitted in one way. So fit it properely.
9)Then tightly Press the valve cover to the gasket
10)And tighten the valve cover nuts secure.

This will help.Good Luck.
