anyone ever do vale cover gaskets? they need to be done on my moms 95 4.0L exploder, usually they are pretty easy but there seems to be a lot of stuff covering them that needs to be removed, any advice is appreciated
Just make sure the head and cover surface is clean & dry. Apply a **thin** coating of automotive and oil resistant grade silicon / sealer to the cork gasket. Then make sure you don't over tighten the bolts. Go back a week or two later and check there is no leaks and that the bolts are snug.
thanks, thats real helpful because i was wondering about whether the intake manifold had to come off or not, would like to do it myself but not sure if it's something i want to tackle out in the driveway
Just did mine, Had to take off the intake. and getting them off the motor will take some finesse. I would get the Fel-pro Permadry gaskets instead of the cork. And use permatex copper gasket sealer/maker.
