Is there a DIY guide on fixing a valve cover gasket leak? I searched but could not find any. Im looking to do some upkeep on my car this weekend, and any info on this one problem would be helpful.

Theres some kind of diy I saw on e46 fanatics or here, cant remember which. But it involved removing and reassembling the valve cover.

Go to a local honda dealer, and grab a tube of hondabond. We even used it on head gaskets. NO matter what mechanic you go to, bmw, merc, even porsche, they all have a tube of hondabond in their toolbox!


It is thicker than generic, and a bit like toothpaste, I find the generic stuff tends to be too runny for my taste
