I need to do the valve cover gasket on my trusty 2.3. Its only a tiny leak but of course its leaking right at the back corner and dripping on the exhaust so the smell is annoying. Considering how much crap needs to be removed to do this Im wondering what other maintenance would be prudent while I have everything apart. Obviously the intake gaskets will get done, going to do my pcv valve while intake is off, anything else worth ordering before I start? :dunno:

The truck is an 09 with only 65k but gets alot of idle time. All the basic maintenance (oil, filters, etc) have always been done religiously.
