First remove spark plug wires from the top of the valve cover. then remove bolts or nuts around the edge of valve cover. once removed. take off cover and replace o-rings and gasket. gasket is located around edge of cover and o-rings are o shaped rubber gaskets on the cover around the holes where the wires normally go through. be sure to replace cover the same way you remove it. estimated cost would be $35 for just gasket and 0-rings it is recommended to also replace wires and spark plugs when doing this.that cost would be 60-$90 depending on make of vehicle.

How do you replace a valve cover gasket on a 89 Honda civic.?

TAke off valve cover then strip off old gasket.. clean entire serface with alcohol or gas or gasket remover. Then buy a new gasket from a local auto shop, along with some gasket sealer... Put on new gasket as old one was taken off. Use gasket sealer on top and bottom or gasket. Just a thin coat. THen place the cover back on with gasket in place and tighten bolts. Let sit for about 24 hours before starting to let the gasket sealer dry.. Should work better then ever.
