    Not really as easy as 1,2,3. There is a metal tube on the left side of the valve cover that is in the way. What is it and how do you get it out of the way. After that its as easy as 1,2,3.

Valve covers leaking


Is the valve cover leakage coming from a crack on cover or valve gasket (between the cover and engine)?
If it is coming between the valve cover and engine, then you will need a new gasket. They range between 20-50 bucks depending on vehicle.
If you can not afford one, for a quick fix, but needs to be corrected as soon as can afford. Your able to make your own quick fix gasket using high heat gasket silicone. It would have to cool off completely before adding silicone making your own bead around the contour of bottom of valve cover then sit for a few hours before starting it.
If you can afford a new gasket; remove the old one. It might take a scraper.
Take some sand paper and clean the where the gasket was really good. Wipe clean then add some high heat gasket silicone. then place the gasket on the silicone. Add a bead of high heat gasket silicone to the engine where the valve cover would go, that helps keep it in place when screwing the screws back on.
If you leakage is coming from a cracked valve cover, i would advise replacing it. I am sure you could find a used cheap one at a local junk yard.

Good luck and hope this helped.

I have a 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5L that is leaking oil into the spark plug tubes; can these seals be replaced or does the valve cover have to be replaced?


Yes, you need a Rocker cover (valve cover) Gasket kit. Remove the valve cover, remove all old O-rings and cover gasket, clean grooves and mating surfaces without gouging or scratching them, put the new gaskets on as per factory recommendations, tighten to the proper torque and you're done. The spark plug holes in the cover are part of the valve cover gasket kit. Any Napa, Car Quest, Pep Boys, Auto Zone will have it.

Need to replace valve cover gaskets on 1992 camry and howmany are they


Buy the valve cover gasket in one of local auto part stores.
Don't start the car, put it on parking breaks. If you drove before wait when engine cools down. After then you will need a 10 mm wrench (it can have different size). Loose all nuts on the valve cover. After that remove the cover carefully. It's possible that you will have to disconnect and loose more stuff from the valve cover. When you open the cover you will see 4 gaskets for each spark plug place remove them also. Now you will need something to clean surface where the gaskets go. It can be special spray to degrease surface or it can be regular gas. Don't spill any liquid on the engine it can be harmful. You can use also sandpaper of minimum roughness to clean the surfaces. After that put the spark plug gaskets on it's places. If they don't stay there you have to buy special sort of glue (usually it's not a case). Then put the valve cover gasket on it's place, there are special grooves. Install the valve cover gasket extremely careful the valve cover gasket is very fragile. After you putted everything on its places start to tighten. You should do that in certain order. Start from one of the edges then middle opposite side and then the side from which you started but another edge (the same for another side). Don't tighten it comletely for one time, make couple "rounds" before you finish. After you check and connect everything remove all your stuff from the engine compartment and start the engine. Don't close the hood you need see that there is no leakage.

How to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu


The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

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 :)
