What would cause the oil to build up on valve cover gasket center bolt 2004 PT Cruiser 4.0l engine?

I'm pretty sure Chrysler never put a 4.0L engine in a PT Cruiser (V6? V8?). And since the valve cover gasket is located between the valve cover and the cylinder head, there is no bolt that holds just the valve cover gasket in place - all the bolts hold the valve cover in place. If there is excess oil around one of those bolts, you have a break in the gasket (or a bad gasket if the gasket is for the bolt only) or the bolts are not tightened to specification.

Does the Rocker covers in a Hyundai 2002 terracan highlander require a torque wrench to tighten the bolts after the gasket is replaced and if so what is the sequence? Same question regarding fuel inlet...

the FSM covers all this, buy one, or log in to
yes, all bolts on the engine are set at a spec. torque.
you didnt state , engine size option, so nobody can answer, exactly.
but all bolts all all parts, should be staged down, to the spec.torque.
some bolts 6mm need to be set to 80-100 inch/lbs. not FOOT.
and if you exceed that much, they strip or snap, making an easy job
1000x more hard.
usually sequence maps (off and on differ) are limited to head bolts and cam cap bolts. but not always, that is why reading the FSM on your car
and your engine options is best. and all those warning there.
include steps telling you to use RTV sealant at special places. log in , read the engine chapter, its all there , all the time.

I had to replace the passenger side fender and Im having a hard time getting the rear bolt on the hood hinge on the passenger side back in. what is a good way to do it?

This works for me ::

- Loosen all the bolts you have in -- loosen them to the point that the hood will "move around"

- Using a bolt or a punch smaller in diameter than the bolt hole, align the hole in hood bracket with the hole in the hood.

- Put the bolt in the hole and turn it counterclockwise until you feel it slip into place, then tighten it clockwise

If the bolt still wo't go in, the threads on the bolt or the thread in the hole may be damaged.

Threaded hole can be repaired with the correct size tap.

Bolt threads can be reapaired with the correct size die if the bolt is long enough -- it the die doesn't work on the damaged bolt threads, the bolt will need to be replaced.

More info, please let me know.

Jetta 2001- timing belt broked and now im traing to get the engin on time

There is a very good chance you bent some valves when the belt broke. If it's a 1.8 turbo then definitely, 2.0 you have a small chance that it is ok. The marks are easy to see, one notch on the cam and one on the crank, the crank lines up to the line on the plastic cover that covers the t belt, the cam lines up to the plastic backing piece that is bolted down with the valve cover. Best of luck.

Valve cover is leaking oil on my 2000 1.9 TDI Passat. Have changed the gasket but still leaking badly. Have been told to change whole cover but VW want £120,00 Any ideas?

will try to help.if it's only the valve cover leaking,i'm guessing they sold you the rubber one that says ne rtv sealant needed. take your back off, try not to break the rubber seal when removing!clean the top of head where gasket goes. clean the valve cover really good!clean the grooves out that the gasket slides into. buy some blue trv glue, apply a thin coat to top of head, let it setup while you apply another thin coat to valve cover, let set 10mins. apply gasket to valve cover making sure to push the gasket into the grooves on valve cover. don't worry about neatness. let the valve cover set on a hard surface with the gasket against the hard flat surface[such as a garage floor,or clean driveway] after10 more minutes install the valve cover,make sure and take your time. place valve cover onto motor,than hand start each bolt to insure thay are going into the prope bolt holes. after you have each bolt hand started, start at center of valve cover snugging the bolts down to motor. do not crank down or apply excessive force when tightening those bolts. you should see some of that blue rtv glue coming out around the valve cover when applying torque to the valve cover bolts. only secure them snug at first. let car set for 15mins. start car and look for leaks around the cover, do not over tighten those bolts but you may need to look for a leak, go to bolt closest to leak and turn it 1/4 at a time until leak stops. but if you do this step by step, you'll not have a leak issue. you may have pinched the gasket when you replaced it. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

I do not know,but 8mm is used most,the length you may can figure out,but go to the parts house,and ask for2 bolts 8mm 1.25 thread,at 25 mm long,and ask for 8mm 1.50 thread,and 25mm length,and cover your bases,they are not that high in price,if some one has them,this way you can go by this,Look at the e g r valve to make sure you can get the bolts in the holes of the e g r valve,cause the heads of the new bolts will ,no doubt be larger than the ones that came out of it,the bolts are a general,or generic if you will,and will work if you can get them in the e g r valve,and use a wrench to screw them in,

Valve cover gasket

No...not really. What you will want to do is get a tool called an easy out or screw extracter, from a place like Sears or somewhere else that sells tools. Take a screw from your valve cover so you know the size of extractor you only costs a few dollars.

You have to drill a small hole in the center of your broken one. Then take the extractor and put pressure on it as you unscrew it. It should come right out. Find a replacement screw at the auto parts store or even look at Home Depot or equivelant
