I have two serious oil leaks in this car. One of them involves a bolt we snapped off putting the oil pan back up. The other though and more serious one is the oil accumulating from the valve cover. It appears the valve cover gaskets have completely failed. My question is, how difficult an installation is a job like that? If I fix both leaks will something else major fail on the car? It has almost 187,000 miles on it. Not bad for a 15 year old car that still has a decent running engine.

The time for rear valve cover gasket replacement is 2.5hrs and 3hrs for both front and rear, I would replace both at the same time and the gasket set is about $43

The free stuff doesn't have any diagrams or pictures. If I have to pay for it fine, but I've never heard of this website.
