Dude, this tool made it so much easier! Thanks, I swapped out my driver's side gasket in no time. I did slice open a knuckle real good, so watch out: there are sharp edges down in there.

Awesome Thread, i noticed that my passenger side valve cover gasket was leaking for a while now, and also noticed a little bit on the drivers side. Called the dealership and some auto places locally and DANG, they wanted over 400 dollars to do it. Definitely gonna do this with one of my mechanical buddies. Thanks for all info and tips!!

Hey guys, sorry to up a dead thread, but I saw my passenger side one weeping pretty good when changing my plugs, could this also be the cause of my burning oil smell?

I saw part of the gasket protruding from the outside of where the plate bolts onto the manifold.

Cleaned it up pretty good, was alright for a few days tonight it got worse, as far as smell goes.

I won't get the part until Monday, and won't get a chance to get it in until probably Tuesday or Wednesday. I have to drive 80miles each way tomorrow, and work on Monday and Tuesday. Is the car safe to drive until that point?

EDIT: I checked around the rocker cover(?) and didn't see any sort of oil leaking from there.

$400 to replace gaskets?

Stealership.

Replaced both of mine today. +1 on the 10mm flex socket. I got the 1/4" drive one at sears and it made it super easy. Not sure where one would get the low profile 1/4" socket that was mentioned before aside from snapon or grinding down a standard socket. Cleaning everything up was the longest part of the job.
