Both of my valve cover gaskets are leaking, so this Saturday I am going to try and replace them. I am pretty car savvy, but I have never done anything like this before, so I want to ask lots of questions before I jump right in.
For the front:
Remove coil pack bracket.
Remove valve cover.
Remove old gasket, and clean gasket area.
Put new gasket on valve cover using drops of red RTV to hold gasket in place.
Torque bolts to 89 inch lbs. with blue loctite on the threads.
Reattach coil pack bracket.
For the back, there is a lot more stuff in the way, so if someone could kind of go over the basic steps I would really appreciate it. I know that I need to loosen or remove the alternator bracket, but there is also the EGR and an unknown black bar that I'm not sure about. Also, if I have something wrong for the front, please correct me.
Also, I bought some throttle body cleaner, but wanted to know if I would need a new TB gasket after removing the TB to clean it.
