SOURCE: After replacing valve cover gasket with dry fel-pro gasket,

Your new gasket has tabs that make it easy to set in place; the tabs hold the position properly on the cylinder head. The gasket also has the rubber coating to establish a tight seal between the cylinder head and the the valve cover, even if there is slight damage or warping. Proper torque for the valve cover bolts is between 50-100 in-lbs., which is about 8 ft-lbs for a maximum.

If you have the gasket properly set, and proper torque on the valve cover bolts, you should not leak.

If you still experience a leak after double checking the gasket and the bolt torque, I would replace the valve cover itself. You will find several at most any salvage yard, and probablly will cost you $10.00 or less for a used valve cover.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

SOURCE: how to remove the valve cover to replace gasket

What kind of engine? If it's a 3.0L Vulcan, you have to take off the upper and lower intake manifolds and you'll be able to take the valve covers off. There's a bunch to take off before you get to that point. The EGR Valve, Throttle body assembly, ignition coil pack, etc. Make sure you relieve the fuel system pressure (it might be behind the right side well cover of your trunk- disconnect that connection), and take off the negative battery terminal before begining work.

Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.

How do I replace the valve cover gasket on a 2002 Saturn L200, 2.2 engine?


Disconnect the camshaft cover grounding strap.Right side of engine.
Remove ignition module, 4 bolts , and disconnect the electrical connection to it. Pull straight up to remove.
Remove 4 spark plugs.
Remove the coolant pipe bracket.
Remove the fuel line bracket.
Remove the 12 bolts holding down the cover, then pry up around the edges GENTLY to remove. You might want to use a rubber mallet at this stage, just don't overdo hitting it, its cast aluminum..
The gasket around the edge and around the spark plug holes don't need sealant, the new design does away with this.
Now would be a good time to check the wear on the Teflon timing chain shield between the camshaft sprockets.
Installation is in reverse order.
Camshaft cover bolts : Tighten to 89 INCH pounds.
Camshaft Ground Strap Bolt : 89 INCH pounds.
Spark Plugs : 15 FOOT pounds.
Ignition coil to camshaft cover bolts : 71 INCH pounds.
Coolant pipe AND Fuel line bracket bolts: 89 INCH pounds.
Good luck.

I have a oil leak and I think its coming from the back of the manifold. I change the valve cover gaskets but its still leaking what can it be.


If this is a 5.0L engine the Oil leak is probably this intake gaskets,I would reccomd you replace the PCV filter and gromet at the same time the gaskets are replace and it would be a good idea to replace the PCV valve also.It would be a smart idea to have a professional to replace the Intake Gaskets!!!!!!!
