The valve cover is mounted on the top of the engine. It covers the valves of the engine, protects the machinery from the elements, and prevents oil leaks. A valve cover gasket seals the valve cover to the top portion of the engine cylinder head. The gasket prevents motor oil from leaking out as it travels around the camshafts, rockers and valves.
This valve cover is made of high-quality materials to resist warping, cracking and porousness, corrosion resistant for sustained protection of the rocker arms.

If valve cover becomes loose or if the gasket material fails, the oil will begin to leak. A leak can cause the engine to have a very strong smell of burning oil, and in some serious cases, it can even cause a fire if enough oil gets onto the exhaust system.
Cracks, corrosion, and misalignment of the valve cover can cause fluid to leak into the engine compartments and lead to engine failure. Catching a leak early on and can help you keep your vehicle running better.

Step 1: The first step may be the last step. Before tearing everything apart, first try gently cinching down the valve cover bolts or use a torque wrench. Over-tightening bolts will not stop bad gaskets from leaking. Aluminum valve covers can crack. Steel valve covers can warp. Monitor oil level after tightening. Move on to step two if oil is still leaking.
Step 2: Allow the engine to cool. Consult the service manual or instructions for valve cover removal. Remove the valve cover bolts.
Step 3: Lift off the valve cover. Tapping with a rubber mallet can help loosen the valve coverâs grip. Be extremely careful not to drop anything into the engine. If a nut or bolt falls into the engine there will be a lot more work to do.
Step 4: Remove the old valve cover and gasket and install the new one. If scraping is required, do not use metal scrapers on aluminum valve covers or cylinder heads. Use plastic to prevent leak-causing nicks. Also note the new grommets on valve cover bolts.
Step 5: Apply silicone only where required. Do not use silicone or sealer unless the service manual or gasket instructions say to use it. Clean all oil off all surfaces before applying silicone. Allow silicone to cure before starting engine.
Step 6: Install the valve cover with the new gasket and tighten bolts to the recommended torque. Valve cover bolts donât require too much twist. A torque wrench and service manual will eliminate guesswork. Install everything you removed to get at the valve cover.
