View Full Version : valve cover gaskets
01-22-2009, 10:15 AM
I have an annoying oil leak that appears to be coming from the valve covers. I bought new gaskets and autozone guy said to use permatex black as well. Any thoughts on whether to use permatex on both sides of the gasket or just one? Are the bolts on the valves covers a royal pain in the ding ding to get to?

cork still no rtv, and be careful when tightening them down cork will crush easily
