Well guys i just installed my valve cover gaskets about 3 months ago it looks like they are leaking again. I believe it was because i couldn't get the screws on tight enough without stripping them...so i was wondering if i can reuse the gaskets.

Now i can get my valve cover gaskets coated...yeah.:D

Fyi, your problem probably wasn't the gaskets to begin with. It was the pos oe screws. Replace them with hexhead bolts and they won't loosen.

OE uses screws for a reason: to prevent overtorque. Heck, philips screws were invented back in the day when mechanics used to overtighten everything. The philips screw was used to prevent an overtorque. When you use hex bolts, don't overtighten.
