4 cyl or 6 cyl? Either way it goes it's a harry job. You have to remove your intake manifold, and heads to get to the has gaskets. Parts are cheap, but labor is usually an arm and a leg. If the car has overheated because of the had gasket going bad, repair shops have to send the heads to a machine shop to be re-surfaced.

I assume you mean the valve cover gasket. You replace it by removing the valve cover and cleaning off the oil gasket and the mounting surface. The install the new gasket and reinstall the valve cover. Tighten it to the specifications the manufacture of your engine recommends.

On all cars it is located on the throttle plate. That is where the air intake and throttle linkage are located.

The oil dipstick has a small gasket at the bottom of the dipstick. Replace the gasket with a new one and the oil should stop leaking.
