Can i change rocket cover gaskets without pulln my engine out

Yes most definatly. Here are the steps, and if you find this info helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated for the free advice. These are also known as valve covers.
  • Disconnect the breather hose, which, depending on the engine in your vehicle, may be attached to the valve cover. Remove the retainer bolts for the valve covers. Depending on which engine you have, you might have as few as two bolts or as many as eight.

    Lift the valve cover off the engine. If it does not want to come off easily, gently tap it with the rubber hammer. Clean the gasket-mating surfaces using the scraper and a shop rag.

  • 3

    Coat the gasket-mating surface of the valve cover with a thin layer of RTV silicone. Install the gasket onto the cover, then press it into the silicone. Install the valve cover.

    Tighten the bolts to 5 foot-lbs. of torque for the 1.2-liter engine, and 4 foot-lbs. of torque for the 1.6-, 1.8-, .22-, 2.5-, 2.7- and 3.3-liter engines. Reattach the breather hose.

    Hi I'm looking for cylinder head torque settings for a 1992 BMW 316/318 e36

    BMW cylinder torque setting all models

    According to my service manual as follows.

    Cyl head to engine block (torx e12 M10 bolts)

    Stage 1 30nm (22 ft – lb)
    Stage 2 + 90 degrees
    Stage 3 + 90 degrees

    Cyl head to lower timing chain cover 10nm (89in – lb)

    The tightening sequence is from inside to outside crossover as normal. Loosening sequence is from outside to inside crossover. Remember to set torque wrench at low setting and work gradually up through the whole sequence until you get the desired torque.
