How to remove/replace the Valve Cover Gaskets on a New Beetle car?

Replace the valve cover gasket if the valve cover gaskets are leaking or if they're worn. The procedure is as follows:--
1) First of all let the motor cool down if the car was recently driven. Then remove the air intake boot.The air intake boot ios attached to the engine's throttle body.
2) Carefully disconnect the throttle cable , hoses and electrical connectors located on the upper intake manifold.
3) Then disconnect the hard pipe that is connected to the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve.
4) The EGR valve is located beneath the upper intake manifold.
5) Then remove the bolts from both the upper intake manifold and the manifold support bracket.
6) Now the upper intake main fold and lower intake manifold both have got loose as you removed the nut.
7) After that remove the upper intake manifold from the lower intake manifold. Carefully place clean rags over the intake runners to prevent anything from falling into the intake system.
8) Then you will have to disconnect the crank case breather valve on the valve cover.
9) Then remove the bolts from the valve cover and remove the reinforcing straps.
10) Then remove the camshaft belt cover and the dust shield from the back of the camshaft sprocket.
11) Now carefully remove the valve cover. Properly clean the old gasket material with gasket remover.

94 GMC Suburban. Replaced intake manifold, now runs poorly.

You may not have sealed the manifold correctly,mistakes like using the rear and front rubber seals can cause this instead of a bead of silicone. To check for intake leaks spray carb spray along the intake gasket to see if the engine changes tone or idle speeds, if it does you have a leak,.

Need to replace the themostat

  • Remove the bolts that hold the thermostat housing onto the intake manifold of the MR2 with an adjustable wrench and pull up on the thermostat housing to remove it from the intake. The housing is still connected to the hose. Lift the thermostat housing and the hose up to drain the antifreeze back into the radiator.
  • 2 Remove the old thermostat from the hole inside of the intake manifold and replace it with a new one. Pull the thermostat gasket off of the top of the intake manifold and wipe the manifold clean with a towel.
  • 3 Place a bead of RTV gasket maker around the bottom edge of the thermostat housing and allow it to dry for 15 minutes. Place the thermostat housing back onto the intake manifold and bolt the housing back into place. Allow 15 more minutes of drying time and slightly tighten the bolts again. This will form a solid seal between the intake manifold and the thermostat housing.

    How hard is it to replace the head gasket or how much would it cost

    its not hard if you get either a haynes, or a chilton repair manual, chiltons are more indepth, and have photos, both are available at most part stores, the part store can also give you a quote on the parts, make sure you ask for an upper enine kit, not just a head gasket. this way youll get gaskets for intake, exhaust manifolds, plenum, and intake gaskets, as well as the head gaskets.

    Lower intake manifold gasket leaking 02 Olds Silhouette

    This is basicly a very time consuming job rather than a physically hard one to complete. In order to replace the gasket you must remove the intake plenum,throttle body, and misc. vacuum hoses. The wiring harness connections must also be disconnected. Finally the intake manifold is exposed. The bolts holding the manifold to the block are removed exposing the leaking gasket. After removing the push rods and placing them in the correct order to be replaced the gasket and sealants can be removed. Finally replace everything in reverse order. Be sure to consult a GM manual for correct bolt torch specs. The correct specs for the manifold bolts usually come with the gasket. Make sure to change your oil a few times after this job in case any coolant entered the block. Also,change the thermostat and the oil seal on the distributor half shaft cap while you have everything off. Good Luck
