When I got my car inspected today and the guy had to rev the motor up I saw the burning smoke coming from the passenger side of the car towards the rear/side of the engine , I took a look at it and it seems it is coming from the valve cover so im guessing I need a new valve cover gasket.
Does anyone know how hard of a job this is ?
It doesnt look to hard but im curious what im going to get myself into?
How long should it take would you say and how much is one of these gaskets ?
Just curious Thanks David
