The valve cover gasket should be simple enough.

1. Locate the valve cover, and clear the way for it to come out.
2. Loosen the valve cover bolts in an even fashion.
3. clean and scrape the gasket surface on both the head, and the valve cover.
4. replace in opposite order.

Enjoy,

SOURCE: replace valve cover gaskets on subaru svx

I don't have experience with this engine but guess you won't have to remove it for valve cover gasket work but perhaps can lift it a bit [not by hand!] after loosening engine mounts.

SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

The valve cover gasket isn't hard to change. Oil on the plugs indicates a more serious problem. Smoke from the exhaust would be from rings, rich mixture, worn valve guides. It may be that the engine is overfull (that would show on the stick). Oil loss from a leaking gasket would smoke under the hood and leave oil on the engine and the ground.

yes, the valve cover gasket is the only thing that can cause this, and yes, you have to remove the cover and put a new gasket in to fix. Please let me know if you have more questions.

Changed the spark plugs and the old ones were covered in oil


i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.

When changing a valve cover gasket, does the cylinder head gasket have to be changed at the same time.


A valve cover does just that, covers the valves on the cylinder head. Barring an extremely unconventional design on the MR2, the valve cover can be replaced separate of the head gasket.

I need to change the valve cover gaskets on a 1996


Valve covers are simple (if you have easy access). They normally have about 8-10 bolts surrounding the gasket. Remove these bolts and it comes right off. Remove the old gasket (do not use razor) with putty knife or gasket remover then install the new one. Usually specs are about 20-25ft lbs. You snug them not torque the bolts. The gasket does all the sealing.

Spark plug change


Well i wouldent of thought you need to take off the valve cover AKA (rocker cover) to change spark plugs. spark plugs are usally set at a touque setting at 10 to 15 NMs (newton meters). if you do have to take off the valve cover the gasket can be re-used no O-rings needed.
