SOURCE: replace valve cover gaskets on subaru svx

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.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket replace on a subaru svx

ALL DATA time to R&R valve cover gaskets both sides is 2.1 hours. you will need to remove brackets and connectors on either side, It will also help to take the upper plenium bolts out but not completly pull the plenium. If you don't have a lot of mechanical experiance and some basic tools. you may want to consider to have a local a shop to perform this service for you after you get a estimate. RON.

SOURCE: replace valve cover gasket

I have the same problem on a 2003 Town & Country. The cover for the front 3 cylinders is quite straight forward, but in order to do the rear cylinders I believe you are going to have to remove the cowling below the windshield. You will need a gear puller to remover the windshield wipers first, then remove the cowling. Than should give you more room to work. It's still not going to be easy, but it sure beats paying hundreds of $$$$ in labor charges.

SOURCE: how to replace valve cover gasket 1998 chevy malibu

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.

SOURCE: Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???

most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

if you have more question please ask.

How do you get to the rear valve cover gasket


Typically the rear valve cover gasket is replaced when the lower intake manifold gasket is replaced. It will be slighttly easier to remove the upper plenum. This will give you a little more room to feel around. It's unusual to see a valve cover leaking on one of these. Are you sure it's the problem? Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Oil in antifreez but no water in oil pan


It is more than likely your valve cover gasket. I am assuming you have the 3.1 engine in your venture and Chevrolet was notorious about having faulty valve cover gaskets. However, the replacement gasket is metal and will not crack apart like the one that came out in your engine. You will have to have a dealership or a mechanic fix the problem for you. I had the same problem as you are having and it was the valve cover gasket. It should cost around $600 to fix.

It would probably be beneficial to go ahead and replace the head gasket as well since they will have the engine apart anyway. It is better to go ahead and do it when you are replacing the valve cover gasket than to wait and if something were to happen and the head gasket go out. Then you will have to pay to have another valve cover gasket put on as well. Hope this helps.
