How much does it cost on average to fix a gasket on a 2002 Chevy Malibu ?


It depends on the gasket , a valve cover gasket would be less then an oil pan gasket ! Both valve cover gaskets $150- $ 190 , Intake manifold gasket $ 547 - $698 , Head gaskets $1,000 - $ 1,200 oil pan gasket $ 211 - $ 269 These are just estimates , not all repair shops charge the same . Here in Pennsylvanian local shops like pep boys charge $115.00 per hour , AAMCO does general repairs too , an they charge $ 95.00 per hour . I found the local Chevy dealer to be one of the cheapest around at $86.00 per hour ! It just depends on where you live ! you have to check around , Do let them bully you either , Ask what they charge to do you particular gasket an if they give you the run around tell them you'll try someplace else ! They always say well we will need to check it out first ! good luck hope this helps an may god bless you !!!!!!

2000 3.3 auto grand voyager. got a major coolant leak, to the extent that you can see it weep. Been to Chrysler garage, who said a little is coming from water pump (£275 to replace), but most is...


It must be leaking from under the valve cover. The time for rear valve cover gasket replacement is 2.5hrs and 3hrs for both front and rear, I would replace both at the same time and the gasket.Its advisable to get it done by technician if the coolant is leaking as the coolant is leaking from under the valve cover. Its $300 for parts and services (timing gasket $40, valve cover gasket $140, oil pan gasket set $70, and coolant flush for $50) . ''the timing cover is leaking coolant''--engines water pump is behind the cover and it is failing-. as far as parts and labor it sounds reasonable and it all sounds pretty typical for your vehicle. But still get it confirmed by any other tech before getting it repaired.To confirm the estimate cost. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Valve cover gasket


Buy the package that come with valves cover gasket and 4 spark plugs tube seals. Its around $10 - $20 and for replace it only remove the pcv valve tube, the sparks plugs cables and ignition coils. Its so easy!! remove the valves cover, only have 10 screws. Try to buy original Plymounth gaskets or Felpro.

I have been told that I have a valve cover leak. Will it harm the motor if I continue to drive it? How much does it cost to repai? The model is 2000 Nissan Xterra


You can do the repair yourself. Your valve covers leaking will result in you losing oil because it's not making it's way to the oil pan. You probably won't hurt the engine if you keep the oil level constant, but you can replace the gaskets yourself. It's a bit of a job, but not too bad. You'll proably have to remove the intake manifolds and replace these gaskets before the valve covers. The valve covers are just plastic covers for the valves-one big box. Put new gaskets in place and reinstall the reverse of removal.

My 1996 Chevroley Monte Carlo has been losing 2 quarts of oil a week. When I took it to a mechanic, he said that the leak is coming from either the headgasket or rear valve cover. I love the car, But I...


Does it smoke? if so, it is leaking at the head gasket into the combustion chambers.

Valve covers are not too tricky. Buy a set of valve cover gaskets and replace them.
Autozone has a tech section on their website that may be helpful for information.
You can do it!!

After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,


Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
