Not too difficult of a repair. While is have not worked directly with the engine you need to start first by disconnecting the ground to the battery. From here examine your engine bay for what items you'll have to remove or move to gain access to the cover(s). I expect you may have to remove the alternator, spark plug wires, other electrical connectors and perhaps the plenum and throttle body. Take your time to note what goes where, take digital photos, make a sketch or whatever to assist you in getting in back together properly. Use a torque wrench (aluminum will strip easily) be certain not to over tighten the valve covers, too tight and you can deform them. Take your time, keep it neat and enjoy the process.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: 1997 Camry Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Removal of the plenum is pretty straight forward. You will need to replace the plenum gasket after you remove it; the gasket is not reusable. Personally, if I was going to take the trouble to remove the plenum, I would replace the plugs and wires back there, also.
I know, I have a 93 Camry V6, and it is a real pain to do the plugs and wires with the plenum on. There are no secrets or great tips on the plenum removal, just take your time. Remember that there are different size bolts, and where they go. Please get back to me if you need any more info...Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to resolve your issue.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I can't find the location of the spark plugs on my 1997 Isuzu Rodeo LS with a V6 3.2L engine


They are underneath the coil that each cylinder has-you'll see 6 "coils"-three to side-on top of each valve cover. Remove the wire connector from the coil-remove two screws holding each coil to valve cover-carefully pull coil up away from valve cover. If it is stuck-slightly rotate coil back and forth to break it's hold on the spark plug. Use sparkplug socket and long extension to reach sparkplug down inside of valve cover. Driver's side of engine you will find one sparkplug difficult to get because of interference from brake system components. Use TWO short extensions coupled together to reach plug-when it becomes unscrewed from cyl head-lift it up-pull off one extension to clear obstruction-then pull the plug out from valve cover. (I bet you'll see some oil inside the hole where sparkplug was-(sparkplug may be wet with oil-there are seals that keep oil from leaking out of vavle cover). I DID NOT bother to replace the seals-my Rodeo is running just fine with 317,000 miles on her.

I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo, V6. The car stalls at


it's the EGR valve and can be fixed by anyone. It involves disconnecting the battery, remove electrical connection, and removing 2 screws and cleaning the surface area well and replacing it as well as the gasket. A new EGR valve runs around $120 and trust me you can fix this and save hundreds!
