Valve Cover Gasket Set Related Repair Advice

  • Valve cover gaskets and seals need to be replaced when they begin to leak oil. This type of leak can damage other engine components, especially belts, hoses, and spark plug wires.
  • Using high-quality valve cover gaskets will reduce the chance of recurring leaks and additional repairs
  • An engine misfire can result from oil leaking into the spark plug tubes. The tube seals and valve cover gasket should always be replaced together.
  • When replacing the valve cover gasket, we recommend having a valve adjustment performed, if applicable. Since the valve cover is removed to adjust the valves, this will save in labor costs.
