just tighten it snuggly .it will be fine as long as there is all the bolts in it

Tighten each one uniformly just until they stop, any further and you squeeze out the gasket, any less and it leaks.

The valve cover torque specs for a 1989 Honda Accord is between 20 and 25 pounds per square inch. Proper torque is important to keep the cover in place without causing damage or leaks.

Not sure about the 1989, but 1990-1993 it goes into the valve cover. Look for a hose running to the valve cover and the PCV valve should be what is at the end of it pushed into the valve cover.

First locate the valve cover. If the motor is a 4 cylinder there will only be one valve cover. If it is a 'v6' it will have two as well as v8 automobiles. With a Socket wrench and extention locate the valve cover bolts that go around the cover bolting it to the top of the engine (cylinder head.) Usually the valve cover will have the 'Oil Filler' cap on it. (Where you add oil to the engine...) With the correct size socket remove the bolts that hold down the valve cover. Lift the valve cover up and away from the cylinder head. You may need to strike it with a soft mallet to get it to release. Once it's off you will see the rockers/springs. Be careful to keep the old gasket debrey from entering the rocker valley. With a razer scrap all remaining gasket from the cylinder head. Some gaskets have an "UP" side so make sure you look over your gasket for any indicators. Then apply your new gasket. Then put your valve cover back on carefully so your new gasket does not move. Slide the bolts back into place and tighten from the middle out. Tighten the bolts until they just about snug then move to the next opposing bolt. So Center, Bottom Center, Left, Bottom Left, Right, Bottom Right etc. Once they are all snug go back and turn the wrench another half turn to tighten them up. *Do Not Over Tighten The Bolts.* or damnage to the gasket or bolt breakage may occur. If oil leaks from the cover check for loose bolts or gasket breakage. Edit by Loosenut: Torque spec is 12lbs. for the valve cover bolts.

The pcv valve on a 1989 Camaro is located in the top of the valve cover. It plugs into a rubber grommet and is easily replaceable.

Look on the valve cover. There is a small hose running from the air filter cover to it.

remove cowling it is on the passenger side valve cover

Usually on valve cover with vac hose to carb.

It's on the front valve cover. The trick is you have to first remove the "breather chamber" by removing the 2 bolts on top. With the breather chamber cover off, you'll see the PCV valve screwed into the valve cover.

The Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve on a 1989 S10 is located in the valve cover. It is toward the front of the motor.

The PCV valve is located in the rocker cover (valve cover) Once you locate it pull up on the hose that is connected to it. Remove the PCV valve and put new one in. Reinstall in rocker cover.

Sounds like the Valve Cover Gasket needs replacing. You need to find out where the oil is coming from first. Clean all the oil off the engine and then start it, and look see where it is leaking. It is probably not the head gasket. Yes, that, but if you remove the Oil Filler Cap, and with the engine running there is considerable air flow coming out of the Valve Cover, then probably you have a bad compression ring on at least one cylinder.....what it does is pressurize the Valve Cover and eventually blows out the gasket....mine does it in the front......leaking oil all down the front of the engine.......a Compression Check would be in order.

top of the valve cover closer to the rear with a hose going straight to the EFI

User Avatar

The EGR valve is usually located on the top of the valve cover...it is usually a plastic part that connects to the valve cover with a rubber seal...there is an emissions hose leading away from it...the PCV valve is also located on the valve cover in a similar fashion, though it is a lot smaller...

User Avatar

It's going to be off the valve cover(s) one or the other. Plugged right into it.

User Avatar

either bad gasket under throttle body or bad iac valve

User Avatar

from the top of the motor is probably a faulty or bad valve cover gasket Could be the oil pressure sensor, it is located next to the distributor.

User Avatar

The PCV valve is on top of the rear valve cover. The air intake plenum extends over the top of the valve making it difficult to see.

First clean off any remaining gasket residue so that both mating surfaces are clean and smooth. Then put the new gasket in place, with gasket sealer as indicated. Put the two parts together with their bolts and torque to specifications.

4.0? Those actually dont have PCV valves, it is the rubber grommet on top of the valve cover
