Head Gaskets and Valve Covers

How do you replace a valve cover gasket?

First, make sure to clean off any crud build up around the general area where the valve cover meets the head. Doing this will prevent too much crud from falling into the top of the head when the cover is removed.

Next, you will have to remove the two nuts holding the air filter housing onto the valve cover. There should be two nuts holding this bracket down. Don't loose the two metal caps that sit on top of the rubber washers. Without them the nuts will bear down into the rubber washers which will wear them out quicker.

Remove the (3) nuts holding down the valve cover. Be sure to save the metal bracket that holds the clutch cable, if you still have that bracket.

With a flat-head screwdriver or other flat object, gently pry around the junction of the valve cover and head to free the valve cover. If this is the first replacement of the valve cover gasket the head surface under the gasket should visibly show where the gasket was leaking.

Be sure to use a putty knife to thoroughly clean off any gasket remnants from the surface. You can use a little solvent to try and help free some of the residue but DO NOT allow any of this fluid to mix with the oil or get on any of the rocker assembly.

Now's the hard part, getting the old gasket off of the valve cover. If yours is anything like mine was then it's rock hard and a complete pain in the butt to get off. I had to use a small flat-head screw driver or a phillips-head to kinda chisel out the gasket from the groove it was lying in.

After removing the gasket and thoroughly cleaning the surface down in the groove I removed the rubber washer type seals where the valve cover bolts come through the top of the valve cover. This will most likely need to be replaced too. To save money make sure you buy the gasket with the replacement rubber washer type seals. I can't remember exactly what they're called but you should be able to recognize them when you see them.

Thoroughly clean the inside of the valve cover from any crud and you might as well clean the outside too while you have it off.

Place a small bead of silicon gasket maker into the groove of the valve cover where the gasket will sit. Also place a small bead on the top of the head where the gasket will sit. DO NOT put so much that it will bleed into the rocker assembly and mix with the oil when you tighten down the valve cover.

After you place the new gasket onto the valve cover place the cover back onto the head. Put the new rubber washer type seals in their three holes and put the nuts on finger tight. DO NOT forget to put the clutch cable bracket back on or your ground wire that came off the right side of the cover.

With your 10mm socket tighten down the middle nut first and then your outside nuts. Make sure it is tight and secure.

Put the air filter assembly bracket back on and be sure to put the steel caps on over the rubber washers so that the nuts do not bear down into them. Be sure everything is tightened down and you're done. Congradulations!!!

The rubber washer type seals are termed "grommets". There's a valve cover gasket w/ grommets kit that is sold and is cheaper to purchase than purchasing them seperately.

Door weatherstripping on 2002 Volvo S80?

If you want to install door weatherstriiping on 2002 Volvo S80 you should try to follow this steps:

Open the car door and inspect the existing door seal. Begin at one end and pinch the seal with your fingers and pull up. Find the anchor points for the old door seal and determine if it is glued or clipped or if screw fasteners hold it to the door frame. Use a razor to cut the seal away from the frame for glued applications, unscrew the fasteners for screw anchors or pull up on the seal with pliers where it clips into existing drilled holes in the door frame.

Clean the door frame where the old door seal was attached. Clips that hold the new seal should be sanded lightly with Emery cloth. Door seals that use push clips should have holes that are clear of debris. Use a drill and bit to clean these holes. Clean the door frame down to the metal where the old door seal was laid if the old seal was glued to the frame.

Stretch the new door seal around the door frame for a proper measurement. If the new door seal has push pins or slides that need to be mated with the holes or slides on the car door frame, then you must adjust the position of the new seal to match the anchor points on the frame. For glue-type door seals, you just need to cut and measure to the correct length.

Secure the new car door seal to the car door frame. If you are screwing the new seal in place, use the existing anchor points to fasten the door seal to the door. For a seal using fasteners, push the new fasteners into the existing holes. Glued seals will require you to spread an even layer of glued along the outside of the door frame and then center the seal and press firmly to affix the door seal to the frame. Glue should be allowed to dry at least six hours before closing the door, preferably 24.

How do you replace front signal turning light on a 2001 Chevrolet Venture van or how to remove the front light housings?

If it's like the 2000 there are two plastic wing nuts that hold the head lamp in place. Once loose, the turn signal piece on the side can be taken off. The sockets are about a quarter turn to come out and he bulbs pull straight out and push straight in. Be careful when you replace the head lamp assembly because there is a long plastic "tongue" that has to fit into a socket on the bottom side. Good luck!

How do you replace the headlight assembly located on a 2002 Volvo S80?

My wife had a stone crack her outer glass envelope, and I was going to attempt to replace this by itself, but it's very hard to get just this part in North America. I managed to do so through an excellent local shop, but when I went to replace the glass, I gave up after trying to figure out how to get the old one off. I ended up taking it to a Rousch employee and he told me he had to take the bumper cover off (screws on the bottom) just to be able to get at other screws that needed to be taken off. He said it was quite involved.

I just changed my headlight and sidelight assembly today. It wasnt very hard it took my friend about a half an hour. The whole thing pops out after a little wiggleing but there are side screws that are difficult to reach. we popped out the side reflector in order to reach one and just popped it back in when we finished. Anyone that has worked on car can figure this one out by looking at it. Just remember that your smaller side light sits in the assembly also and will have to be unhooked also.

What are position lights?

The position lights on my XC70 are the bulbs just above the taillights/brakelights on the rear of the car. I have one that is often going out and generating the position light message. I usually just rap the brakelight area with my fist and the light pops back on. I guess there is a loose connection in there.

How would you remove the Climate Control panel or face of Volvo S80?

Step One - Disconnect Battery. Step Two - Disconnect Battery. If you do not disconnect battery you will have to take the car to the dealer so they can charge you 100 bucks to reset the SRS airbag reset light. Volvo is evil. Step Three - "POP-UP" plastic surrounding gear shift using screw driver or credit card. Step Three - There will now be two "star" screws exposed. Unscrew both. Don't drop screws inside. Step Four - Pull unit down and towards you. Also, gentle wiggling from side to side helps Step Five - Disconnect Wires.

Are there any non-OEM manufacturers of catalytic converters for your 2000 T6 or does any other Volvo model catalytic converter fit?

The aftermarket industry makes a converter that will suffice, However you CANNOT, I REPEAT CANNOT, reuse a converter of of a another vehicle that has been used. The EPA will fine you at the very least 5000 dollars for doing so. Get a hold of Catco, or goelrich (not sure about the spelling on that one) and they should have a suitable replacement that will pass emissions testing, and not get you into trouble with the EPA.
