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.

How do I change a valve cover gasket for a 2003 maszda 2.3L

I recommend going out in purchasing the repair manual for this vehicle. You're saving about a hundred plus doing this job spending $20 on a manual isn't so bad. It's a straightforward job basically a 10 millimeter socket and remove all the bolts that are holding down the valve cover. And then anything that's in its in your way to remove the valve cover. A rubber mallet will come in handy you also cause some of those valve covers can be a little hard to loosen. once you have the valve cover off clean the head and scrape cover of any remains of the old gasket.Other than that I don't know what kind of gasket this vehicle uses weather is neopran or cork.also weather there isn't a sensor safe adhesive you need with the gasket. That's why for the 20 bucks for the manual it's worth it could answer the questions that you need to know (torque specs tools etc.)to do this job correctly.some manufacturers don't recommend an adhesive usually wouldn't neopraingasket and is he is not use. But in any event with the new gasket on the valve cover and carefully place it on the engine. Once it's on then put the bolts in and tighten them in a crisscross fashion. Then put everything you took off the vehicle to give you access to the valve's a simple job you're saving yourself a bundle please get the repair manual. Good luck

I pulled a spark plug to change plugs and the spark plug wire boot was all wet from oil. The other three plugs were fine. The rest of the engine looked fine apart from the regular dirty engine look. No oil...

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.

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.

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.

Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

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.
