SOURCE: rocker cover oil leaks NL pajero 1998 NL

The gaskets may not be at fault; the first time the valve cover was removed it was probably damaged by an impatient mechanic.
Most covers are sheet metal and the gaskets have an ugly tendency to get sticky over time making removal very difficult.
An inexperienced or sloppy mechanic can easy damage the edge of the cover causing a permanent distortion that a gasket replacement cannot correct.

I hope you have correctly identified the source of the leak since a warped cylinder head can also cause oil loss but that would be from the junction of the cylinder and block.
That would be much more expensive to correct than replacing a damaged valve cover.

SOURCE: Replacing an intake manifold gasket on 1993 ford ranger 4.0

I've replaced several of these gasets and they were made that way.
It wouldn't hurt to call a different autoparts store and ask them if theirs are made that way.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket and grammets

Go buy a valve cover gasket and put it on. Mark and pull plug wires, remove valve cover bolts. Remove old gasket {the gasket has the grommets on it} and replace. No need for anything else.

Oil pressure sensor replaced 9/14/2015started to leak oil again. Valve cover gasket replaced 1/6/2016 9/14/2015 now leaking oil again


When you replace the rocker cover gaskets, clean the surfaces where the gasket contacts the heads and the rocker cover with alcohol and a rag. Make sure there is absolutely no oil residue on either surface. Use a silicon sealer and spread it on the side of the gasket that will touch the head. Position it and use the head bolts temporarily as guide pins to hold the gasket in place until the sealant dries COMPLETELY. Remove the bolts. Now put more sealant on the surface of the rocker cover and install the cover on the gasket gently so as not to disturb the gasket. Install the cover bolts and tighten firmly but not so as to squeeze or deform the gasket. If dine correctly, the gasket will not leak.

Rear axel leaking ford 1997 f 250


If it's leaking then it needs a gasket put on or RTV GASKET MAKER put on the cover or it's just simply cracked some how if it's the cover then take a drop pan drain the remaining fluid and clean both surfaces very good possibly spotless then apply the RTV high torque grey sealant gasket maker very thick around the edge and center where the bolts are and re apply the cover but make sure it lines up and is very clean inside also if it's a slip posi rear end you will need a bottle of friction conditioner and 3 1/2 bottles of motor craft differentail fluid as recommended by ford and remove the filler plug after the RTV is dry and refill the rear axel and if it remains to leak either you sealed the cover wrong or bad plug otherwise the axel is cracked and needs to be replaced

Would like to know if you recommend an RTV sealant or similar be used with the gasket when replacing the thermostat


What was on it?

You either have an "O" ring or a gasket
in most cases.

RTV isn't good for much of anything

There are places it is used, but not on
a thermostat, in my opinion.

You may get a different answer.

You never use RTV with a gasket, there
are other sealants you can use, but a dry
gasket is all that is required

Oil leak from rocker cover


It is most probably the rocker cover gasket. This is enough to install, you just need to source the correct part from your local parts store or dealer. Remove bolts and rocker cover and replace seal. Ensure on replacement, that you use a sealant that is compatible with oxygen sensors, I use PERMATEX ULTRA-BLU RTV Silicone. That seams to work a treat.

Can somebody please tell me how long it should take to replace rocker cover gaskets in a 1998 v6 toyota camry as the quote i have been given seems excessive , thank you, Daz


About 30 mins in total and that is generous.

Breather pipe off
Spark plug cover off
HT leads off
10 screws and the rocker is off. Clean the rocker edge, new gasket, some sealant and refit everything. Repeat for other bank. If I lived nearby I'd do it for a beer :)

How do I replace the valve cover gaskets for a 1996 Ford Ranger w/ 3.0L Engine?


The valve covers installed on the 3.0L engine incorporate integral (built in) gaskets which should last the life of the vehicle. Replacement gaskets are available if required.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnect the ignition wires from the spark plugs, but leave them attached to their wire looms.
  2. Remove the ignition wire separators from the rocker arm cover attaching bolt studs with the wires attached, then lay the wires out of the way.
  3. If the left hand cover is being removed, remove the throttle body assembly, the PCV valve and fuel injector harness stand-offs. If the right hand cover is being removed, remove the engine harness connectors, fuel injector harness stand-offs and air cleaner closure hose from the oil fill adapter.
  4. Using caution, slide a sharp thin blade knife between the cylinder head gasket surface and the valve cover gasket at the four RTV junctions. CUT ONLY THE RTV SEALER AND AVOID CUTTING THE INTEGRAL GASKET.
  5. Remove the integral gasket from the valve cover gasket channel. Note bolt/stud fasteners locations before removing gasket for correct installation. Clean gasket channel and remove any traces of RTV sealant.

To install:
  1. Align fastener holes, lay new gasket onto channel and install by hand. Install gasket to each fastener, seat fastener against cover and at the same time roll gasket around fastener collar. If installed correctly all fasteners will be secured by gasket and not fall out.
  2. Install valve cover to the engine, lightly oil all bolts and stud threads. Apply a bead of RTV sealant at the cylinder head to intake manifold rail step (two places per rail).
  3. Place the valve cover on the cylinder head and install attaching bolts and studs. Tighten the attaching bolts to specifications.

  1. Install all remaining components in reverse order of removal procedure. Connect the ignition wires to the spark plugs and reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and run to normal operating temperature, then check for oil and vacuum leaks.
