Valve Cover Gasket Kit ($13 at autozone, big box with two tubes of RTV and 11 neoprene bolt seals)
--- alternatively, you can buy the preformed gasket for about $30 - if y…
step 2Remove the intake You'll need your screwdriver to loosen up any clamps. You really only need to remove the section that bolts up to the TB -- this just makes working faster. If you d…
step 3Remove Solenoid I think its an EGR solenoid - regardless, its bolted on to the side of the valve cover. If you can unplug it - be my guest. I couldn't, so I used a socket and unbolted it.
step 4Remove Spark Plug Wires etc. Pull the wires. Also disconnect the PCV canister and breather hose.
step 5Remove Valve Cover Bolts and remove the valve cover Using the Torx bit, remove the valve cover bolts and their gasket washer ring thingies. I think they are all the same size, so no worries about keeping them in order. Th…
step 6Optional - **** out any oil If your gasket failed like mine, you're gonna need to pull some excess oil out of the plug wells. A plastic turkey baster comes in handy here :P I used a pipette - it is wh…
step 7Clean the Mating Surfaces Using the gasket scrapper, remove any and ALL of the old gasket material. Using a #1 (or maybe #2) flat head screwdriver will help get the old material out of the groove…
step 8Apply the RTV Gasket Material Follow the directions on the tube of RTV. Evenly apply a bead of RTV sealant on the valve cover. I added a little extra to the #1 and #2 spark plug well. I did this because…
step 9Put the valve cover back on This is important. Place the valve cover back on the head exactly where you want it without hitting anything. If you smear the wet RTV, you're going to have to clean it off…
step 10Final Steps Now you're pretty much done. Using your socket, replace that solenoid and any hoses you took off. Replace the intake, breather hose and PCV line. Then let your car sit f…

thermistate housing is the place you refer to it fuction is to hold a thermastate to open and close water flow at 150 to 190 degree according to car spectif the thermaste sticks it causes overheating and can blow the thermastate gasget, the tole cost is about 30$ at most for the thermastate and gasget...now many other things can cause a car to over heat and cause a hose leak and somtimes it is simple to just tighten the hiose clamp at the thrmastate and problem sovled see a water leak causes the radiator to lose presure and thus with out a sealed tight water cooling system the boiling point of water is lower and thus the car over heats when in doubt stop by the local gas station and have a tech take a quick look as it could be simple as the hose clamp difficult as a therm,astate but do not let it go to warp a head gasket as this blown headgasket is what is the end results of running a car to hot

WOW! that's pretty darn hefty no matter who ya are. Are you loosing very much oil? If not at least get the heater hose replaced(but not from these guys) And while its at a independent shop, have them look at that turbo oil leak-yes should be repaired, turbos don't like to run without oil, but could be just a loose line. Check with friends, family, and neighbors to see who they recommend to work on your car. I don't know were you live, but I would bet that there is a foreign car specialist around.
