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: 1984 F150 302 Had oil pan gasket and both valve cover gaskets

If you have oil coming down between the transmission and the engine where they meet your problem is with the rear main seal. It seals the back of the crankshaft so no oil comes out. Over time it tends to leak especially if the oil changes haven't been done on time or you live on dirt roads. Where the transmission and engine meet there should be a metal shield but it may be already removed. Just pry that back and see if there is oil. Depending on the color tells your rear main seal for the engine or the front seal on the transmission. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: ford mondeo 2001 has misfire and wont tick over

Any engine will have trouble ticking over if only 3 of the 4 cylinders are working. Check the spark plug for a consistent spark on all cylinders. Check the connections to the fuel injectors on the cylinder head, and check the compression in all cylinders (take spark plugs out and use a compression tester whilst turning the engine over on the key). Low compression in one cylinder may mean head gasket failure, valves out of adjustment (staying open) or bigtime piston or piston-rings failure.

SOURCE: water leak from timing chain cover

Remove the water pump and harmonic balancer (use a balancer Puller). Remove the remaining bolts from the timing cover and the front four bolts from the oil pan. Remove the timing cover. Clean the old gasket from the block and cover . Reassemble. You may want to replace the pump as a maintainance item while it is removed.

Valve cover leaks


Try replacing the valve cover gasket. If the valve cover gasket still leaks oil after replacement try adding standard 1/4 lock washers to the top of the valve cover bolts. I have a 2005 Suzuki Reno and had to replace the valve cover gasket several times. Adding the washers tightened the seal of the gasket and prevented any leaking,

I have a massive oil leak coming from my timing cover (or gasket) in my 2000 Toyota Camry. ( About 1/2 a quart for five minutes of idle) How much does this cost to repair and how did this happe


You have more problems than the timing cover. It sounds like your crank seal is gone, or you engine oil pump leaking. Your timing cover doesn't have oil in it. . Tell your 'Mechanic '' to take the timing cover off and see where it's coming from. And while you are there you should also change your water pump. They usually have about the same life span as the timing chain. Make sure you use all new gaskets O ring and seals. Let me know what it looks like after the cover is removed. You have to remove the valve cover on some toyotas to get at the cover. Hope this info helps keep me informed Cheers from Nova Scotia

1995 toyota camry leaking oil from behind the timing belt cover. Isn't this a major repair? Is the leak more than likely a camshaft seal?


either the cam seals are leaking or the valve cover gasket is leaking into the timing cover. maybe even head gasket... but in most of the cases like oil leaking from behind the timing cover the camshaft seal is the faulty .and replacing the camshaft solves the problem. no its not a costly part to be replaced. you can get it from a local car repair tech or from www.autozone.com service center.they also deal in parts. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Intake manifold leaking wont hold coolant


Both of the engine that came in your vehicle have this issue. The upper and lower intake manifold gaskets, and the 3.8L valve cover gasket need to be replaced. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, and if you do the work or have it done, have the Thermostat replaced at the same time. Book time is about 6 hours to do this repair plus parts.

Timing cover leaking


Before you go out and replace the timing cover gasket; check to see if the timing chain tensioner is not the cause of the leak. I will bet you a FixYa rating that the tensioner is the culprit, not the cover gasket. I replace tensioners every week, and I have never had to do a cover gasket.

Also, the answer given to you by "suterman" is 100% WRONG. Your car has a timing chain, not a belt, that is why you have a tensioner, and it is leaking. And, if he had any clue about cars, he would know that you pull the balancer off BEFORE you pull the cover. In any case, you need to do little more than replace the tensioner.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice.
