Anyone have a diy on the TT(93-95 non vvti) valve cover gaskets? And oem part numbers for the gaskets and rubber hoses between the coil packs that get hardened?

Thanks in advance

Super easy, just remove spark plug cover, take the crank case hoses off, unbolt all the bolts and washers becareful the washers can get stuck to the valve cover itself and fall off. I would replace the washers btw. Pull old valve cover gaskets off, use new gasket, put some oil on the gasket and smooth out the gasket into the cover. Then install back

Careful with the front bolts/washers near the cam gears. Don't want those to drop down!

"Put some oil on the gasket"?

I've read mix answers for FIPG on the area near the cam caps.

I am also attacking this job as soon as my gaskets/washers get in.

The most important things you need to know are:
  1. When you tighten the bolts on the valve covers, be gentle! The torque spec is 48 inch-pounds, which is 4 foot-pounds. If you exceed this on the front "ears", you will crack the valve cover. Tighten them all evenly over several passes so that the valve cover tightens down evenly.
  2. Use FIPG where the FSM says to. There are two spots in the front at the corners of the cam cap #1. If you don't, you will have an oil leak there.

I cannot stress this enough...do NOT overtighten the valve cover bolts.

Use new washers (they have rubber gaskets on them).

Yeupers. Use an inch lbs torque wrench and make sure you tighten in a crisscross pattern and not all at once. The valve covers can be brittle.

I am going to threepete this. Very easy to crack the valve covers. Otherwise pretty simple procedure.

While we're talking about this, does anyone have a recommendation for a good inch-pounds torque wrench? I don't want to spend a fortune, but I do want a good one.
