You need a valve cover gasket set a metric socket set and some common sense. It's not rocket science to do this job.

2001hyundai accent signs of blown head gasket

Same as any other engine. The head gasket can blow between two cylinders, in which case compression in each will be very low, or it can blow/leak water into oil such that the oil will be milky looking, or it can blow to the outside and show as leaks. One good way to test individual cylinders, is to remove a spark plug and screw in an air chuck made for this use and hook up compressed air. Is you then see bubbles in the radiator coolant gasket is leaking, or if the dipstick blows out the leak is to the oil.

Valve body leak 2002 dodge stratus

A vertical cover...I had to ponder that a bit. Still not sure. The valve cover sits flat on top of the cylinder head, with a gasket between them. The cylinder head is where your spark plugs are threaded in. The valve cover rests on top of the cylinder head. It's about 14-18 inches long and about 4 inches high, kind of rounded over so the valves and valve train will fit underneath. A gasket leaking motor oil is very common there, as a lot of oil is directed there and then splashed around to lubricate the valve train. The oil is supposed to drain through engine passages on down to the oil sump- the bottom of engine where oil is kept in the oil pan.

So if you have an oil leak, and it turns out it is the valve cover that is leaking, it's an easy fix-one of the easiest gasket replacements there is.

The block is liking

It is very unusual for a block itself to be leaking, it needs to be cracked for that to happen. Check first to see if it in not a gasket leaking (you did not mention what fluid is leaking). If it is coolant it would normally be from the head gasket or running down from the water pump or thermostat housing. If it is oil it would be the head gasket again or possibly the oil filter bracket. Once you have pinpointed the origin of the leak we can formulate a method of fixing the problem.

Oil is leaking into spark plugs

If your plugs are wet with oil then you have a piston ring problem. They are not sealing and oil is flowing from the crankase around the pistons. There is a possibility that you have a bad head gasket also. Or is the question asking how is oil running down and getting on the plugs from the outside?

Head gasket crack

Replacing a head gasket is a pretty big job for mechanics and typically costs some $. If you know your head gasket is cracked DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR! You can do permanent damage to the vehicle which would more than likely make your car worthless because you would need a new engine or a the minimum need to completely rebuild the one you've got. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa!

Oil leak

If by head covers you mean valve covers this is an easy fix just install a new set of valve cover gaskets, as this is a fairly common problem ( valve cover gaskets ). Just unbolt the valve covers and remove them then scrape off the old gasket and install the new ones and bolt the covers back on. This is a pretty easy job and the gaskets are less than $ 25.00. If it is the oil pan gasket you will needto drain the oil and unbolt the oil pan and remove it then clean off the old gasket and install the new one.
