Begin by removing the valve cover retaining bolts. Peel the old gasket off and clean the surface. Put the new valve cover gasket on. Replace the valve covers to their original position.

There are valve seals on each valve in an internal combustion engine. How many depends on the type of engine and size. Removing valve seals is not for someone who in not very mechanically inclined. Get yourself a Haynes Service Manual for your car (Autozone,NAPA) ~$25. The complete procedure is in that book.

The PVC valve will be located in one of the valve covers. The valve covers are on top of the engine on either side. And it will have a hose attached to it which will lead over to the air intake system.

Remove the valve covers by removing the bolts holding in in place. Scrape off the old gasket, put on sealant and the new gaskets. Tighten them according to the specifications in the auto repair manual.
