SOURCE: how to remove the valve cover to replace gasket

What kind of engine? If it's a 3.0L Vulcan, you have to take off the upper and lower intake manifolds and you'll be able to take the valve covers off. There's a bunch to take off before you get to that point. The EGR Valve, Throttle body assembly, ignition coil pack, etc. Make sure you relieve the fuel system pressure (it might be behind the right side well cover of your trunk- disconnect that connection), and take off the negative battery terminal before begining work.

How to replace a valve cover gasket on my 1987 Ford Ranger with a 2.0 L engine


Relatively simple gig. Remove wires from plugs making sure to note which leads to which plug so that firing order is maintained on re-installation, remove vacuum hose from pvc valve, remove six valve cover retaining bolts and remove valve cover. Clean that up making sure there is no residue on gasket mating surface on wither the valve cover itself or the top side of the header. place new gasket in place and replace valve cover torquing bolts to appx. 72-108 inlb. Replace pvc vacuum line followed by plug wires and you\'re set. This is a stripped down version as there will be many hoses and lines in the way but you should just be able to wiggle past these. If you do end up taking anything else out just make sure you remember where and how it connect and you\'ll do fine. Nothing this high up is that terribly sensitive. Good Luck!
