Go to www.alldatadiy.com and spend the $26.95 to get factory info on how to do any repair on your vehicle for a whole year. Money well spent.

I went to the website and bought the membership, there is one problem tho, it doesn't tell me anything about the valve cover gasket at all, it goes into specifics about rebuilding the engine and stuff but it doesn't give me much info at all, that website is more useful for someone who is an experienced mechanic not the average joe like my self, thanks anyways
The Valve cover gasket was replaced at 50,000 miles and now I'm told it needs to be replaced again at 110,000 miles, is this normal? Also, is it normal to replace struts at 110,000 miles?
my eclipse is a 1998 I replaced the valve cover gasket, tube seals and plugs and about 2 weeks later there was white smoke and gas coming out of my tail pipe. to pass smog test they cleaned egr port
