To replace the valve cover, you will need to break the gasket and the o-rings. The gasket prevents oil from leaking.

With mine the spark plug tube gasket broke and one of the spark plug tubes was flooded with oil. Also try changing the sparkplugs.

That isn't likely. Most head gasket failures are caused by overheating. Not changing the oil will cause the motor to sludge up and increase the wear on the internal parts.

The oil filter gasket is built into the filter itself, so just by changing the filter, you always get the new gasket.

Pretty straight forward. You must remove the intake manifold in order to replace the gasket.

On a component like that gasket goo is always a good idea. Coat it very evenly. My preferred goo for these kinds of jobs is "Permatex Aviation Form a Gasket"

Try changing the valve cover gasket.

Sounds more to me like a radiator problem.

Yes it can leak water through the intake gasket into the runners in the head and smoke white, But the water ports and intake runners are a long way from each other because of the design. SO I would say that you have a cracked head are bad head gasket that is making it smoke. Did you get the engine hot are over heat it ? If so then you have a head gasket or head problem not an intake problem.

I had this problem and the manfold gasket was leaking I am aware of sensor issues with this but I has to replace the manifold gasket problem solved.

If its a legitimate knocking then you would want to go with head gasket if its a tapping you would be looking at a valve

If you're referring to the water pump gasket, and, if you're changing a faulty water pump, a gasket should come with it and also needs to be changed (Use the grey Permatex gasket sealant on the new gasket). If you're referring to the head gasket - not necessarily.

Many gasket kits actually recommend using a gasket goo. As long as you are careful and get only a light coating to hold the gasket while installing you will have no problem.

Did you reset the light? I don't know what gasket you changed, but undoubtedly that was not the problem. The check engine light comes on when there is a problem with the emissions system.

replace corke with new and install dry if it is the rubber reusable just wipe off and reinstall

Try to check the valve cover gasket (most likely that's it) and the pan gasket.

Most definitely the ideal answer would be YES! The integrity of the bolt is not the same once it has been torqued appropriately

There are no particular years that cause a head gasket failure, it can happen any time.

You pull the head off and change the head gasket. There is no treatment for a blow gasket, exept changing it. Its a pretty huge job I would suggest getting it at the garage and get a quote.

no you will blow the engine. get it fixed
