SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

You are really onto it! Either the TPS or the cable from the peddle. Do check the cable first. Frankster016

SOURCE: My step son replaced the valve cover gasket on my

There may be a wire or vacuum pipe not plugged in correctly or plug leads on wrong plugs maybe. Whatever is causing the problem wouldn't be much so tell him to get his **** back out there and remember what he unplugged from where.

SOURCE: When changing a valve cover gasket

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.

This question is about my 1990 Toyota Cressida. I'm in the process of replacing the valve cover gaskets because of an oil leak. My question or is it possible to remove the center piece between...

I CAN tell you that just cleaning out the plug wells is a good idea so no crud gets in the cylinders when plug is pulled. The center piece you speak of is not understood. As for the gasket sealer, yes, it's a good idea to use Black RTV on the head surface after cleaning and to stick the gasket to the valve cover.

Well, tighten the valve covers down, just so the bolts are nice and snug on them. These kinda last how long they last, they are different for all cars. Maybe 60k to 80k, if you are lucky, they should be pretty easy on most cars to change. Use rubber bands to hold the gasket to the valve cover, in the bolt holes.
A/C, get a mechanic, these systems have a high pressure side, and a low pressure side, and if freon blows up on you, if freezes skin like you would not believe.
