is not hard if you got the right equipment.(tools) there's 2 ways for doing this in car and removing the entire cylinder head. you got to get the spring compressor that allows you to keep the cylinder head in the car , and you also going to need a way to keep the valves from falling into the cylinder when the valve keepers are removed.usually we use compressed air but if not available before removing the keepers tie the valve stem with some fishing wire(string etc). when your valves are secured. proceed to remove the seals.

I will add that its much harder with an overhead cam engine because the cam needs to come out. Its a pretty quick and easy job if you have rockers instead.

How do you replace valve stems and guides on a 1989 Jeep 4 Cylinder engine?

The head, or top part of the motor, must be removed to replace valve seals. After the head is removed take it to a machine shop and they will mill the head to make sure it is flat and also grind down the valves and replace the valve seals.

IF YOU MEAN THE OIL IS DOWN IN THE SPARK PLUG TUBE. THERE IS A SEAL THAT IS IN THE VALVE COVER THAT GOES AROUND THE TOP OF THE SPARK PLUG TUBE, THEY GET HARD AND START TO LEAK INTO THE TUBES AFTER A WHILE. YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE VALVE COVER TO REPLACE THEM.

Under the valve cover there are seals on top of the plug tubes, you will need to replace the valve cover gasket and plug tube seals.

You replace the valve seals on a 1996 Saturn SL1 by removing all of the hardware to get to the valves, unseating them, cleaning them, and sliding the new valve gaskets on. In order to do this you should consider getting a good Chiltons or other repair manual for your make, model, year, and engine.

When asked from a mechanic about replacing the valve seals on a 5.0 V8 mustang engine, i was quoted 300-400. I have yet to take him up on that offer. This is in the 20164 zip code area.

The Chevrolet 350 stock "O" ring valve seals attach to the valves not the heads but, yes the head assembly has valve seals.

You have to disassemble the valve and replace the springs and cup seals, and maybe the ball.

Replace them. This can be done without removing the heads. Talk to your mechanic about this.

bad piston rings or bad valve seals. valve seals are easy but time consuming to replace, while piston rings mean a total engine rebuild. sometimes, you can remove the sump, and get the pistons out from underneath.

User Avatar

Get a mechanic to do it. You obviously have no idea as to the complexity of the task. e.g valve stem seals, valve seats, warped head tolerances etc.

Yes, you remove the rockers, add air pressure in the cylinder through the plug hole and use a valve spring compressor to remove valve spring. You can now change the valve seal.

Most common cause for a misfire on the 2.5L is oil in the spark plug holes do to leaking valve cover plug tube seals. You would need to replace plugs, wires, and valve cover gaskets in that situation.Most common cause for a misfire on the 2.5L is oil in the spark plug holes do to leaking valve cover plug tube seals.

Bad valve seals will that. You can purchase oil treatment which allows partially restore failing gaskets. But if the engine is doing that for a while, you need to replace the seals.

It is used to replace valve seals on many automotive engines without removing the cylinder head from the block.

The oil in the Spark plug area would mean your seals are worn out. The valve cover has seals between the valve cover and the head. Once you replace the seals you should be good to go now as for the other part of the question i will pass on that one hope i was helpful.
