Question about 1997 Honda Civic

Open Question

1997 Honda Civis, 5 speed w/ac Vin# JHMEJ6570VS015541 Valve cover bolts. The valve cover kit I bought had the rubber/metal gromets/washers with no bolts. When I took out the old one, it was a bolt/slip washer combo. It is obviously designed not to come apart. Are the original parts available?

I do not think the original problem even matters at this point since the engine is probably broke with valves running into pistons.. when you fix it replace every thing that is broken.. and .. just getting in there and replacing the belt can alert you to any additional coming problems like the bearing going bad in the tensioner.. always check or replace the tensioner if there is any doubt as to its condition.. good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 Honda Accord EGR Valve Error P0401

-after you change the part you have to reset/clear the code

-this can be done by either:
(1) using the OBD2 code reader that Autozone used OR since option 2 (below) is very quick
(2) disconnecting the battery for about 30 seconds (this will delete all codes/radio presets/etc) but it will also clear the 'check engine' code
-this is what I do AFTER i write down my radio station presets :)

-hopefully the new EGR valve resolves your issue after you CLEAR the code
...but that code just means a an insufficient amount of Exhaust Gas recirculation (pressure difference) used to keep the emissions in check
-if it comes back, then there are a few other fixes to try also

-let me know if you need further assistance
-please remember to rate me `fix-ya`if it works

SOURCE: Valve Cover Gasket Replacement 91 Honda Accord

dont worry about what is underneath the valve cover, you will not need to touch anything there. This is as easy as putting gas in your car.. k here we go:
Your gonna need a 10millimeter, or a 13millimeter socket wrench. 2 cans of carborator cleaner. You're gonna open your hood as far open as you can. You're gonna remorve your throttle and cruise control cables which are located on top. Move them out of the way. If you have a ground cable connect it to the valve cover, remove it also. Then remove all bolts that hold the valve cover on. Once all bolts are removed, (loosen up bolts until your valve cover can be removed) sometimes the valve cover will be stuck on, you need to jolt or hit with a rubber hammer to break the seal loose. Once seal is broken loose remove valve cover and plave outside vehicle. At this point look at the head, make sure there is not old gasket material or silecone residue left on it, then do the same to the valve cover itself. Use the carborator cleanner to clean all the gunk and **** inside the valve cover After cleaning, place new gasket and distributer gasket onto the valve cover and place back onto vehicle. Tighten bolts until they are snugg (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLTS!!) After all the bolt are in snugg, start from the inside bolt and retighten working your way to the outside bolts CLOCKWISE. Place the throttle cable back on and start car, check for leaks, if you see no leaks change your oil to make sure no dirt got into the oil. and then you're good.. let me know how it worked out for you. ;)

How do I replace a broken valve cover bolt on a 96 honda accord?

remove cover again, drill small hole into bolt if it is broken off too close to get with vice grips, use ez out very casrefully.

place some sort of rags or towels to catch metal shavings, can also spay shave cream on top of rags or towels to help catch metal shavings.

these bolts are only ten mm so only take about 7 pounds of torque. tighten in criss coss fashion little by little evenly.

Where is the pcv valve located on a 1999 honda accord?

Under hood, center, upper engine area, top of engine, MOUNTED IN THE VALVE COVER (probably has a rubber hose connected to it, coming from a place further back toward the firewall) It usually is removed by simply pressuring it upward out of the rubber gromet that it resides in.
Hope this lets you find it.

Oil leaking into sparkplug holes on rubber boots

Buy a new valve cover gasket set (and a small tube of silicon high temp sealer). It comes with new rubber seals for each sparkplug hole, and the cover perimeter.Use a little silicon glue on the gaskets to hold them in place. Take your time,do the work with a cold engine in a shaded area. Clean all the oil off the wires and make sure all the old gasket rubber is cleaned off.And check to make sure before you put the cover back on that no old gasket pieces are in the engine.

98 Volvo V70 Turbo engine oil leak

It may be the gromet for the PCV valve or it could be the spark plug rubber seal located in the valve cover if it is the type of engine that has the wires and spark plugs that go down through the valve cover, if this is the case buy a valve cover gasket with the rubber gromets that are located around the base of the hole where spark plugs fit through and install.

Removing valve cover toyota camry

You need to pull the plug wires up and out of their tubes. They can get stuck so twist them left and right to help loosen them first. The plugs are in the tubes. Use a 5/8 plug socket to remove them. Around the tubes you will see large flat nuts. You will need to remove all 4 of these. Also on the top timing belt cover there are 2 10mm head bolts you will need to back out at least 1/2 way for 2 reasons. 1 to free up the wire harness that crosses there and the bolts extend over the valve cover blocking its removal. Then with a screwdriver pry up the metal washers and rubber seals that were under the large flat nuts. The pcv valve needs to be pried out of the valve cover in the center and then the cover will come off.
Reverse to install.
