Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
Need to know how to remove valve cover to replace gasket. valve cover gasket leaking
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.

On valve cover, there are 8 or more screws, maybe one or two connect to small part to hold either hose or others, remove those screws around the cover, the cover will loss.
When you change the gasket, you have to clean both cover and head surface, make sure it is completely clean, then use grease instead of glue, it is much better, when you tight it, do not make too tight, it will break the gasket but also not too loss, it will leak again, you have to do just right.
Hope this can help you, if you have other question, post it, I will help you.

SOURCE: leaking valve cover gaskets
The problem is over tightening.
If you over tighten your fastners you will sqeeze your gaskets too much and they WILL leak.
You can use black silicon sealant LIGHTLY but you don't really need it. If you have the V6...the torque on them nuts are only 80 in lbs each
