valve cover parts and tools requiredim out of the repair deal but you need a valave cover gasket set, a tube of rtv gasket maker (i like the black) and lots of ganas because is going to be time comsuming. you alsow need 3 sizes of Philips #2, 3 medeum flat screw drivers, a set of deep and short standard sokets (chech to see if it is metrick before you buy tools, im not 100% shure) about 3 or four 3/8 extansions for ratchet one 3/8 ratchet (i like the swevel in this situations) one lose 3/8 swevel a crecent range, chanel locks. the rest depend on the rust the vehicle may have. and remember to only hand tight the valve cover screws, be easy turn them until you feal they stop and no more, this is on ruber gasket. if you get the foam gasket turn the screw until the foam is gently compresed.

You just bought a 1999 Windstar SE 75000miles rebuilt trans Any big issues to look out for?

Vacuum leaks at the intake manifold gaskets, which causes the vehicle to run lean and cause the check engine light to come on. This is usually caused by a poorly designed baffle in the front valve cover that allows oil past into the PCV system ,and into the intake manifold which softens the gaskets and makes them leak. There is a redesigned valve cover to correct this. Raise the hood and see if the front valve cover is black(origional problem cover). If it has been changed to the new design valve cover, which is an unpainted aluminum cover(new design), then the intake gaskets may have already been replaced as well.
