A broken valve cover gasket will lead to a very large oil leak, replacing it is relatively simple requiring only basic tools. First unplug the battery and remove the spark plugs, along with all the valve cover mounting nuts and bolts. Remove the old gasket and set the new one in place, using a gasket sealer is recommended.
The same as any other car. You must remove the heads. This is a major repair that should only be attempted by someone with the knowledge, tools, and skill.
To replace the valve cover gasket, remove the PVC valve and undue the spark plug wires (make sure you know which spark plug they go to) and remove the valve cover by loosening the accorn nuts. Your valve cover gasket kit should include new gaskeys for the spark plugs and the mounting holes. If you aren't replacing the distributor, you shouldn't need to mess with the O-ring. However, if you want to change it, you don't need any special tools. Just unplug the distributor wires (MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHERE THEY GO!!) and then remove the distributor.

Changing a head gasket (or in your case, gaskets) is a long process. If you have to ask this question, then you probably do not have the tools and knowledge to complete the task. A service manual would be necessary for you to have the correct procedure and torque specifications.
Basic mechanics sockets, ratchets, and extensions, plus a good torque wrench.
Trace the fuel lind from the tank to the engine and the filter can be changed with special tools from the parts store.
No. But they look similar and are of similar size and shape. The valve cover comes of very easily with minimal tools and isn't very tight. The valve cover only weighs a pound or so. The valve cover gasket goes between it and the engine. The gasket looks like a rectangle with bumps and holes for bolts. The head is the top part of the cylinders including where the valves go, where the spark plugs are. Removing the head takes much more powerful tools and the head can easily weigh 50 pounds on a small engine. Removing the head is much more work but can usually be done by someone who doesn't know what they are doing. The gasket is more complicated with large circles for the cylinders, and medium holes and small holes for bolts.
If you're doing the job yourself, and have all the necessary tools, the cost will be only that of the gasket and maybe some PermaSeal. You can check Autozone's website for the gasket price.If you're having it done at a shop, you're probably looking at several hundred dollars.FriPilot
No offense but if you don't know how to do it don't" You will need special tools and special equipment to be able to do it.
If you have to ask that question you shouldn't do it yourself as removing a cylinder head is not for the inexperienced. if you do decide to do it yourself make sure you have all the proper tools, and a repair manual, you'll need a full range of metric tools including a torque wrench. follow the manual for the rest of the instructions. Replacing the head gasket on any vehicle is a long and complicated process, however if you wish to see basic step-by-step instructions go to the related question on the right side of the page "How do you replace a head gasket?"
