It's a tight fit to get tools/hands in there but you should be able to get the bolts loosened & out w/o having to lift the motor up.

1. Take the bolts out

2. Take the valve cover off

3. Toss out the old gasket

4. Clean head mating surface,(use a gasket scraper and don't scratch it)

5. Install new gasket into clean valve cover

6. Put cover back into place

7. Replace bolt gaskets

8. Tighten to spec evenly (just tighten down by feel, doesn't need too much, should be 4 ft_lbs or less which isn't much)

9. You should be good to go!


Let me know how this turns out

Does a blown head gasket from an internal leak also need the radiator replaced?


No not necessory but u must have it tested for leaks and make sure it is not clogged internally or externally so u have good flow of coolent inside and no restrictions to air flow , if cooling system is corrosion free inside of radiator should be ok.

step 1Materials Valve Cover Gasket Kit ($13 at autozone, big box with two tubes of RTV and 11 neoprene bolt seals) --- alternatively, you can buy the preformed gasket for about $30 - if y…

step 2Remove the intake You'll need your screwdriver to loosen up any clamps. You really only need to remove the section that bolts up to the TB -- this just makes working faster. If you d…

step 3Remove Solenoid I think its an EGR solenoid - regardless, its bolted on to the side of the valve cover. If you can unplug it - be my guest. I couldn't, so I used a socket and unbolted it.

step 4Remove Spark Plug Wires etc. Pull the wires. Also disconnect the PCV canister and breather hose.

step 5Remove Valve Cover Bolts and remove the valve cover Using the Torx bit, remove the valve cover bolts and their gasket washer ring thingies. I think they are all the same size, so no worries about keeping them in order. Th…

Subaru 2002 wrx bov dump valve


Is it a vent to air or recirculating one. Also it depends on manufacture, some are quieter than others, higher boost pressure will also make it sound louder but other factors are involved with this so I should take advise from your local shop.
