You have a blown head gasket. Remove the heads and replace the gaskets. Also have the heads inspected for cracks.

Bad plugs, or plug wires. Blown head gasket, or burnt valve. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak you may have a blown head gasket. Sweet smell at the exhaust is another sign of blown gasket. If none of that applies, replace the plugs and go from there.

No, only a blown head gasket or cracked head will cause coolant to mix with the oil. A leaking valve cover gasket will only cause oil to leak onto the engine block externally.

There are several possible indications of a blown head gasket: If the head gasket is blown between adjacent cylinders there will be poor or no compression in either cylinder. Poor compression in any cylinder can be caused by a blown head gasket. That condition can also be caused by a burned valve or piston. Coolant in the crank case can be caused by a blown head gasket. Compression in the coolant can be caused by a blown head gasket. An engine with a blown head gasket usually loses performance and runs poorly or not at all.

To replace the valve cover, you will need to break the gasket and the o-rings. The gasket prevents oil from leaking.

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.

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.

Rocker gasket? If you are referring to a valve cover gasket, no it will do no damage as long as you keep the oil level full.

simply remove the valve cover gasket,take the old one off,clean the area well, and replace the gasket,tighten the cover evenly.(if ur gasket is made of corque take care not to break the gasket

Begin by removing the valve cover from your 1995 Dodge. Remove the valve cover gasket and clean the surface. Put the new gasket on and return the valve cover to its original position.

take off valve cover throw away old gasket replace old gasket with new put valve cover back on pwn

No you do not.... the valve cover only bolts to the head, and the head bolts to the block... True- these are two different jobs. When changing your valve cover gasket you may just want to ensure that your head bolts and lifters are still torqued down properly. Otherwise, DO NOT remove the head gasket if you simply want to change the valve cover gasket. when replacing the head gasket you should replace the valve cover gasket and may need to (depending on make & model) replace the egr gasket, intake mainifold gasket, and exhaust manifold gasket ...but not the other way around. If your replacing the head gasket ask your local auto shop if they carry a head gasket kit that includes everything necessary in one box...but if your just changing the valve cover gasket then just change that.
