How to Replace a Valve Cover Gasket?

Open the hood and locate the engine valve cover.

Inspect around the valve cover for signs of leaking engine oil.

Now that you have confirmed that the valve cover gasket is leaking and needs replacement, remove the valve cover bolts using the 3/8 ratchet and socket.

Remove the valve covers (V-style engine) and set them aside. If necessary, pry the covers with a screwdriver or tap them with a rubber mallet.

Remove the valve cover gasket from the engine block. Scrape off any gasket material stuck to the block. To remove oil, wipe down the block surface with a rag.

At this time, clean the valve covers with brake cleaner spray. If needed, scrape away any remaining gasket pieces left on the valve covers.

Attach the new valve cover gasket to the valve cover with an adhesive sealant. Lay the cover assembly on the engine block.

Install the valve cover mounting bolts and torque to manufacturer's specifications.

Check the engine oil level and add if necessary. Start the engine and check for oil leaks at the valve cover gaskets. If oil is still leaking, verify that the gasket is properly seated and the mounting bolts are tight.
