Check your crankcase ventilation, the hose or pcv may be blocked or disconnected.

Dear Honda owner, Valve cover leak? I assume you are refering to an external oil leak from the valve cover, replace the gasket, be sure the new gasket set comes with spark plug seals.

Most probably, you have a valve cover gasket that is bad, and the oil is dripping down onto the exhaust manifold, and is being burned. Replace the valve cover gasket.

Oil on the outside of the spark plugs is caused by a leaking valve cover gasket. Replace the valve cover gasket. Oil on the electrode of the spark plugs indicates the engine is worn and is burning oil. The only fix for this is an engine rebuild.

Remove the sparkplug cables, breather hose, and remove the valve cover. The gasket is a permanent type and comes as a 5 piece kit that simply pushes into groves in the valve cover. Once installed, replace the valve cover and connect the breather hoses and sparkplug cables.

Changing a valve cover gasket really has nothing to do with an engine starting or not. You need to check your power and gas for problems in starting.

If you see oil in the spark plug chambers in your Accord you will need to replace the vavle cover gasket. Oil from the top end of your engine (camshafts) is leaking through the vavle cover gaskets into one or more of the spark plug wells. Easy fix!!!!

same as you do on the ford question below your question here. And that goes for all the other types of vehicles you have.

Remove the valve cover. Pry out the old gasket and clean the surface of the head where the gasket will touch it. Scrape out the groove where it was to get all the old glue out. Put a thin bead of anaerobic sealant into the gasket groove in the head cover. Set the gasket in place. Put it back on the head and tighten the bolts to 25 lb-ft - or "finger tight plus one turn"). This is a job that's easier done than said;

its the tip of the small hose that plugs into the top of your valve cover

The valve cover gasket, on a 2004 Jeep liberty, can be found by removing the valve cover. Peel the gasket off of the head and replace with a new gasket.

Pretty easy. Remove the valve cover by loosening the 5 bolts holding it in place. There are a couple of hoses and another screw that will need to be removed as well. If the valve cover has been on the engine for some time, you may need to apply sufficient force in breaking the valve cover/gasket loose from the engine. The gasket lies beneath the valve cover along its edge. The edge is lipped so the new gasket can be placed in this groove. A Honda dealer will typically apply an additional sealer to the new gasket above the semi circular portions at either end of the valve cover, but I don't believe this is required. (Pretty expensive to buy the tube for just one application.) Replace valve cover with new gasket installed. Tighten bolts, replace hoses. Done. ..................................................................................................................................... Not done. Don't forget the O-rings around the spark plug openings in the valve cover. These should come with the new valve cover gasket.

That depends on fast the oil is leaking out from the V.C. gasket and how soon you plan to adjust the valve clearance. If it isn't leaking much and the valve adjustment is planned soon, might as well wait until you have your valves adjusted since the valve cover has to be removed then anyway.

The valve cover ask it, on a S 40 Volvo, can be replaced by first removing the valve cover. Remove the old gasket and replace with a new gasket.

Remove the bulb from the back side. The lense does not have to be removed.

pcv valve replace every 30000 miles.. bad oil pan gasket, or valve cover gasket

get a screw driver and pop the cover off after that all you have to do is pull out the old one and replace it (it's cheap too)

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
