Maybe you should send it to a shop of pro`s if your asking this, if something is in the way of removing or installing a bolt or nut, you may have to remove that item obstructing it first in this case "the black box" to get to the nut or bolt your aiming towards. Engine work can really be a pain and requires patients.

Valve cover is leaking oil on my 2000 1.9 TDI Passat. Have changed the gasket but still leaking badly. Have been told to change whole cover but VW want £120,00 Any ideas?


will try to help.if it's only the valve cover leaking,i'm guessing they sold you the rubber one that says ne rtv sealant needed. take your back off, try not to break the rubber seal when removing!clean the top of head where gasket goes. clean the valve cover really good!clean the grooves out that the gasket slides into. buy some blue trv glue, apply a thin coat to top of head, let it setup while you apply another thin coat to valve cover, let set 10mins. apply gasket to valve cover making sure to push the gasket into the grooves on valve cover. don't worry about neatness. let the valve cover set on a hard surface with the gasket against the hard flat surface[such as a garage floor,or clean driveway] after10 more minutes install the valve cover,make sure and take your time. place valve cover onto motor,than hand start each bolt to insure thay are going into the prope bolt holes. after you have each bolt hand started, start at center of valve cover snugging the bolts down to motor. do not crank down or apply excessive force when tightening those bolts. you should see some of that blue rtv glue coming out around the valve cover when applying torque to the valve cover bolts. only secure them snug at first. let car set for 15mins. start car and look for leaks around the cover, do not over tighten those bolts but you may need to look for a leak, go to bolt closest to leak and turn it 1/4 at a time until leak stops. but if you do this step by step, you'll not have a leak issue. you may have pinched the gasket when you replaced it. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I need a step by step outline on how to change valve cover gaskets on a v6 1988 bronco xlt


First off you need to disconnect the battery. then you will need to take the plug wires off be sure to number them per cylinder. NOTE on the passenger side you have cylinder starting from the front of the engine 1-2-3 3 being at the back of the engine. on drivers side you have 4-5-6 6 being at the back of the engine. firing order is clockwise- 1-4-2-5-3-6.. then you will have vacuum lines that have to come off so you would need to mark those as well as to where they go, you can use masking tape and a fine point black marker. You must take out the altenator for better clearance on the passenger side and you may have to loosen the distributor to have clearance because of the ignition module if it is in the way. most hoses and fuel lines can be lifted up with a bungie cord and connected to the hood for getting those out of the way. the biggest pain is the wiring harness for the engine that runs through the pentium you can wiggle it enough to bungie it up out of the way. you may also find that you have to remove the heater hoses also since that will give you more clearance on the passenger side. the bolts are a 10 mm they also should have a spreader on them that you must look for under the bolt very important to put these back on. carefully lift and remove the vavle covers. clean all gasket and material off of the engine and on the vavle covers you want them clean enough to eat off of.. check vavle covers where the bolts attach to see if the vavle cover is straight if not then use a board under the vavle cover lip to tap the holes back down from the underneath side to get them straight. once all this is done then you need to get i suggest the cork felpro gaskets and some black sealant for valve covers. once the vavle covers are clean and ready for install then coat the valve cover where the gasket goes with sealant and let it setup- very important. then coat the gasket on one side and put it on the valve cover the valve covers have cutouts to where the tabs on the gaskests go then install on the valve cover. then coat the gasket again and let it setup for awhile very important. then reinstall the valve covers using a criscross pattern staring from the center out then tighten all bolts the same . very important do not over tighten the bolts just snug them up otherwise it will leak-reason the valve covers will warp by the holes.. and let the vehicle sit for about 12 hrs to make sure the silicone is set up.. it is a good weekend project did my fathers took about 2 days sat-sun but never leaked since..

Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???


most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

2001 dodge 2500 4x4 high oil consumption


These are know for having a leaking gasket on the bottom of the intake that will cause oil consumption. To test for this take the pcv valve out of the passenger side valve cover and the crankcase filter out of the driver side. With the engine running put your thumbs over the holes in both valve covers. It should build pressure. If you feel it pulling a vacuum, the gasket is leaking. You have to remove the intake and flip it over on a bench to change the pan gasket on the bottom.
