The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Oohlalajameshunt, reiterate the answer of this statement. I recently just changed a 6 cylinder 1998 Grand Prix 3.8 valve cover gasket. I started at around 8:30 and finished around 2:30 pm, it could have been earlier but performing the repair myself took some time. It involves removing the alternator, serpentine belt, spark plugs, (make sure you number the plugs) check your wires for corrosion, so that you replace them as your replacing your valve cover gaskets. removing the coil rack and brakets also involved in replacing your gaskets. Called pep boys and they wanted 387.66 for the repair. Send me a picture of your engine and I'll resend you a work work picture repair guide. send response to

Thanks, James Hunt

Remove the old gasket from the cover and the manifold using a cleaner designed for this purpose (found at automotive parts stores). Put adhesive on the manifold, and valve cover. Line with a new gasket on the valve cover and replace the valve covers. Tighten the bolts and re-connect the battery.

If you are talking about the EXHAUST manifold then most of the time it's the valve cover gasket that is leaking oil. REPLACE VALVE COVER GASKETS. If you are talking about the intake manifold then it has 2 rubber gaskets in the front and rear of it that leak oil real bad. If oil is on the left are right top sides of the intake manifold were the valve covers are then it will be the valve cover gaskets that are leaking oil.

To replace the valve cover gaskets on a 2003 Jeep Liberty, the valve cover is removed. The old gasket is then removed from both the valve cover and the manifold (old gasket will come off in pieces on both sides). Then spread the sealant on the manifold, place the new gasket on, then put sealant on top of the gasket and replace the valve cover and bolt down.

As with all valve gaskets it is located between the valve cover and the head. To get to it you undo all bolts holding the valve cover on and then pull valve cover off. you will find it on the valve cover/ head contact point.

It is very important to change PCV valve. If valve is old it will plug or seize. This will cause oil pressure to rise and may cause leaks. Most likely the valve cover gaskets will leak if PCV valve is plugged.

In my experience valve cover gaskets typically don't break until you remove the valve cover. Some (especially older style cork gaskets) tend to harden over time. Once that happens the combination of heating/cooling that expands and contracts the valve cover can cause leaks to develop. When the cover is removed to replace the old leaking part, some of the gasket might stick to the cylinder head breaking the gasket. Cheers

If the valve cover gaskets are leaking, yes.

The oil leak is coming from the valve cover gasket and leaking onto the exhaust manifold, the rubber valve cover gaskets get hard from the engine heat and start to leak, you will have to replace the rubber valve cover gaskets to stop the oil leak
