With the valve covers off and engine running you can adjust the valves until they stop ticking....Hope this helps. (different torque for different wear)

S-10 2000 sluggish after starting

A blown headgasket and overheating may have damaged the engine's rod bearings, pistons/rings, or even the valves.

Suggest a compression and leak down test be done to verify health of engine.

I have a 96 Chev. Beretta, and hard to start with sputtering and sneezing after misfire. and then will eventually start but very high idle speed.

If the check engine light is on I would check it for trouble codes first.
The high idle could be a vac leak or faulty idle air control valve.

What needs to come off the engine too replace the valve cover gasket on the rt side or rear side (depends on how you are looking at it) of the engine.The engine is a 3.1 liter.Thank you in advance,Scott

I would recommend changing both gaskets. You must remove anything that is on top, hoses, wires ect, BUT MARK everything and make a diagram of what you took off, and also take some good pictures.
Make sure you get all the old gasket material off of the engine, and valve covers, clean the inside of the valve cover really well with solvent, and use a very small amount of permatex orange high temp silicone on both sides of the gasket, let it set up for about 10 min.
DO not over tighten valve cover bolts.
Let me know how it goes

Chev. S10 starts but stop's immediate when hot

check compression, at that many miles the exhaust seats could be wearing up into head causing valves to stay open longer loosing compression,while the engine is cold oil is thicker ,lifters pump up further do to thick oil when oil thins out you have less lifter pump up thus working working properly check compression cold should be 125 low to 155 any less than 100 you have valve prob.
