Valve cover gasket holds oil from the valves from leaking off the top of the head . Head gasket is lower and holds cylinder pressure between the cylinder head and the engine block.
No, if there is coolant in your valve cover it'll be mixed with oil. You blew your head gasket, possibly warped or cracked your head. It may look like coolant is leaking from your valve cover but it's your intake gasket leaking.
If the valve cover is leaking it may let oil flow down the head and make the Head gasket appear to be leaking. Clean the engine and then use oil dye or watch for leaks. If there is a coolant leak it is not the valve cover.
It usually means you have a leaking valve cover gasket.
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.

An oil leak there is probably a valve cover gasket leaking. it would not require head gasket replacment. Try tightning the bolts on the valve cover. If that does not work then replace the valve cover gasket. Yes it could be the head gasket as there are oil passages in the head and i have heard that head gasket on saturns are prone to failure,look around the valve cover for sings of a leak hopfully that's all it is because replacing the head gasket is costly on th 1.9 sohc
Bad PCV Valve? Leaking head gasket?

I would suspect that is a Valve Cover gasket leaking.
Hey Bon==No, the bubles can be from a leaking head gasket. Have someone with a tester to check the radiator for gasses. goodluckJoe
The Intake gasket is leaking, NOT THE HEAD GASKET. Replace the intake gasket
im guessing someone has told you that you have a 'leaking valve cover gasket'. the valve cover is normally on the top of the engine,above the pistons, sometimes its where you put the oil into. The gasket is where the cover joins with the block.
The head gasket seals the head to the engine block. Coolant and oil flow through the head. The gasket prevents then from mixing together. The valve cover gasket only prevents oil from splashing onto the engine and exposing the valve train and moving parts to the outside of the engine. No coolant makes contact with the valve cover gasket.
Valve cover gasket? Prevents oil from leaking out of valve cover Valve seal? Prevents oil from entering the combustion chamber.
To replace the valve cover, you will need to break the gasket and the o-rings. The gasket prevents oil from leaking.
You need a head gasket.
The most common cause is a leaking valve cover gasket. Try tightening the bolts ever so slightly. If that does not cure the leak, and you know for sure the gasket is leaking, then it will have to be replaced.
oil leaking on your spark plugs in your Lincoln LS because you have a leaking valve cover gasket.
Intake gasket leaking on the inside of engine.
usually if there is white smoke coming out of anywhere in your exhaust that's an indication that your engine is burning oil, most likely caused by a leaking or blown head gasket, but could be caused by oil leaking down the pipe from your other leaks and burning off. Oil smoke is NOT WHITE... If you have white smoke/steam coming from the exhaust then that will be engine coolant leaking into the combustion chamber. Nother words you have a BAD head gasket or a cracked head. Blue smoke is oil.
The head gasket sits between the head and the engine block if it is leaking out where you can see the coolant, yes you can smell the coolant if it is leaking into the engine no you cannot smell the coolant. You can check the oil to see if it has coolant in the oil if it does then the head gasket might be blown.
