How much experence do you have with working on cars? I've worked on BMW's for the last 4 years and as a full time job for the last 2 so doing a valve cover gasket for me is cake. But if you have little experence you may fight it for a while to get it done.

I've done all the basics on my car, filters nd oil stuff, spark plugs etc i know how to do it im just always afraid of overtightening the screws as i did with one of the spark plug coil things! i basically know how to do it just wanted to see if there was something tricky about it!? i really need to get a torque wrench! the biggest problem in my car is gettin the left (when looking at the engine bay) plastic cover off the engine, it gets stuck in the back and won't just simply slide out!

thnx...
