Nothing is worst than a leaking toilet flush, as it can give a homeowner torrid time to solve the issue. To overcome the problem find the root cause first, in this context a plumbing leak or tension on the flush chain. Most of the times low quality flush valve are also the reason your toilet flush might be leaking. If the DIY thing doesn't help call a plumbing company near you and repair or replace the leaking toilet flush ASAP.

You have to disconnected the hose connecting the valve and the injector. After you need to pull out the PCV valve. You might have to help yourself with a screwdriver. If you are planning to keep the pcv valve grommet you have to be careful. If you are going to replace the grommet just be careful, prevent any staff falling down in the engine. Decrease the grommet. You might want to connect the valve to the hose before installation. Put the new valve in the grommet. If it's loose you need to replace the grommet or use high temperature silicon to fix the problem. If you had the check engine light on it's recommended to reset the computer.

either tighten the valve cover bolts, or replace the gaskets.

Wouldn't that depend on the type of toilet valve and where the leak is coming from that would dictate the type of repair?
