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: 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.

SOURCE: how to remove the valve cover to replace gasket

What kind of engine? If it's a 3.0L Vulcan, you have to take off the upper and lower intake manifolds and you'll be able to take the valve covers off. There's a bunch to take off before you get to that point. The EGR Valve, Throttle body assembly, ignition coil pack, etc. Make sure you relieve the fuel system pressure (it might be behind the right side well cover of your trunk- disconnect that connection), and take off the negative battery terminal before begining work.

SOURCE: 2000 camry. blown head gasket (daughter drove car

Yes, you can, but not exactly recommended. If you are going to go that deep into it, then might as well do everything else. However, being unemployed tends to have a negative impact on the wallet....

I suspect it is more than just rings. I think that the walls have been scored badly as well. You may be able to use a borescope to take a peak into the cylinder through spark plug hole. Move the piston to bottom of stroke, and see what you can see. If scarred, much work will be needed. If hatches look alright, then you might be able to get away with just rings.

What kind of compression are you getting on #1 vs #2? This also might be a blown headgasket into an oil passage, or the head (perhaps block?) is ever so slightly warped in this area.

Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.

2007 ford explorer sport trac 4.0 v6 all 3 spark plugs on passenger side are coated in oil doesn't smoke 2nd set of plugs in 3 months driver side plugs are fine im tired of guessing anyone know?


comment exactly what you mean when you say --covered in oil
1-- is they covered in oil on the outside around the insulator and wires/ coils
2-- are the center electrodes black with oil and misfiring
if it the outside then replace the rocker cover gasket or if the plugs are recessed into the rocker cover , replace the oil seal under the plug tube in the rocker cover

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.

There is an oil leak that is coming from an area above the drivers side motor mount bracket . any ideas ? thank you


The rocker cover gaskets, they shrink up over time and leak, usually the rear drivers side on a V6 or V8 is the first spot. You can try tightening them up and stopping the leak, it is the cheapest route to take, but you will probably have to replace the cover gaskets, they do not come off easily. You have to remove the intake, most of the time. Then pull the covers, replace the spark plug seals, then the rocker cover gaskets, put it all back.Use no sealer to put them back on. No more leak. Hope this helps.
