You will need a Valve Cover gasket. Some gaskets come with those seals, and they do in fact call them Half-moon seals. .

I have a 2002 hyandai elantra Sls I have a bad oil leak on drivers side it's pooling up on transmission it is def motor oil and I know the head gasket is leaking but I don't think it would spray oil would...


I would say to you, first get some engine cleaner spray on that area of the engine and hose off. This will give you a much better idea of where oil is coming from. I think you may have a very bad valve cover gasket. When you drive the car the oil leakage will be more visible. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Light smoke is coming from under the hood can u tell me what i should do and is it safe to drive for now


I don't know which engine you have but if it's a V6 it's very likely the valve cover gaskets - they tend to get brittle and allow oil leakage. If the smoke is from the sides of the engine that's likely the cause. If it's from the rear it's probably a half-moon seal.

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

Replacing camshaft position sensor, Sable 2003,Ohv


usually if the magnet in the sensor comes out it destroys the cam position shaft,(it should have a half moon shape when u remove the sensor from the cam pos/oil pump drive. if the half moon is damaged or missing u must replace the cam pos/oil pump drive, and yes it is timed with the engine. wot i have done is try to locate where the half moon was on the drive it usually leave a trace of where it was. now index where the half moon is at remove hold down bolt and remove the driver assy. install the new drive, clock the half moon shaft to match the one u just removed once u get the half moon shaft where u want it and the oil pump rod alines and the whole housing is down install the hold down clamp. now to get rid if that check engine lite youll have to plug a scanner in and look at the live data adjust the cam position till u have plus or minus 2 degrees

I set cam and crank timing but no comp. No bent valves! Note, #1 piston no at tdc.at mark. Is one toth off.


I have run into this before . Volvo wants you to buy a special tool to properly set these cam's in time since the cam-drive pulleys are oil advanced . That's fine if you have up to $300.00 for the tool . I made 1 for under $20.00 . Here's How - Buy a 2in. by 7in. by 1/4in. piece of flat steel . 1 - Measure & mark 2in from each end (Length wise) . 2 - Measure & mark from the previous marks 3/4 in. towards center (Width Wise) . 3 - cut out space between marks (Finished product will look like a flat horse-shoe) . 4 - Put (flat horse-shoe) in a vise length wise (TABS UP) . 5 - bend each tab 1/8in.out from straight in line oposite directions (When done if you look straight down the lenght of the tool the tabs will make it apear the 1/4in piece of metal twice as thick)(1/2in.) 6 - Pull valve cover and look at the fire-wall side of the cam-shafts 1 side will be small half moon up(slots in cam will give the apearence of a small & large half moon) 1 small up and the other cam small half moon down . 7 - slightly turn the cams left or right to be able to fit tool in slots . 8 - With tool in place re-install cam-drive belt w/# 1 piston at TDC . 9 - adjust tensioner with very little tension against belt ( grab belt w/ tensioner tight above and below tensioner you should only be able to twist belt no more tha 1/2in. either way ) Bolt her down put her back together ( remove tool ) put valve cover back on & fire it up . GOOD LUCK!!! hope this helps you out .

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.

I have 94 miata with oil leak in back of the engine looks like it's coming from the right side somewhere


If I can remember,, check valve cover rubber where it seams with camshaft rubber on rear of cylinder head, the 1/2 moon rubber sits in a concave slot in head itself,usually removed, clean and reuse rubbers with a dab of silicone.

I need to replace the valve cover gasket on my voltswagon jetta


you probably mean the valve head gasket.

In this case this is serious work and you should contact a local VW dealership or mechanic and have them do this work for you to insure a job well done. If you simply mean your Valve cover, then this is no big deal and can be done by taking out the 4 screws found at the corners of the valve cover and then simply lifting the cover free and replacing it with a new one/tightening the screws back down.

hope this helps :)
