2004 Volvo XC70 Q&A
2004 Volvo XC70 Question: Can a do-it-yourself guy handle replacing valve cover gaskets on this vehicle?
Noticed an oil leak under pan after an extended drive. When I had oil changed, mechanic said it appeared to be the valve cover gasket. It looks like there are a lot of plastic covers and wiring to remove in order to access the covers. Since the covers would be coming off, shouldn't the valves themselves be adjusted at that time? - de-360
This engine doesn't have a valve cover gasket or adjustable valves. It has a camshaft cover that is sealed with a liquid gasket, and they rarely leak. Did you have this looked at by an experienced Volvo technician? - Bret Bodas
