The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

Need to change valve cover gasket


the valve cover gasket should be simple enough.

1. Locate the valve cover, and clear the way for it to come out.
2. Loosen the valve cover bolts in an even fashion.
3. clean and scrape the gasket surface on both the head, and the valve cover.
4. replace in opposite order.

Enjoy,

I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...


yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

When changing a valve cover gasket, does the cylinder head gasket have to be changed at the same time.


A valve cover does just that, covers the valves on the cylinder head. Barring an extremely unconventional design on the MR2, the valve cover can be replaced separate of the head gasket.

I need to change the valve cover gaskets on a 1996


Valve covers are simple (if you have easy access). They normally have about 8-10 bolts surrounding the gasket. Remove these bolts and it comes right off. Remove the old gasket (do not use razor) with putty knife or gasket remover then install the new one. Usually specs are about 20-25ft lbs. You snug them not torque the bolts. The gasket does all the sealing.

Spark plug change


Well i wouldent of thought you need to take off the valve cover AKA (rocker cover) to change spark plugs. spark plugs are usally set at a touque setting at 10 to 15 NMs (newton meters). if you do have to take off the valve cover the gasket can be re-used no O-rings needed.

Should I do a compression test?


No, not for valve cover gasket.  For a head gasket, maybe.
