Valve Cover Gaskets

Has anyone here had their valve covers done? Been trying to find threads but all i can find is timing cover post.

Curious if RTV is used in the process of replacing the gaskets. Getting my tube seals redone in a week or so and I'm nervous.

Yeah follow the tech manual. Consider getting a gasket set too, to replace the spark plugs gaskets. I did mine like last month.

I think my valve covers are also leaking. Is it possible to remove said covers without having to removing the front timing cover? Can this also be done without pulling out / removing the whole engine from the engine bay? Also, does one have to drain the oil before removing the valve covers?

I need also to replace my spark plug tube seals and would be doing it at the same time as this.

The valve covers are separate and can be removed without touching the timing cover. You can probably get the job done without pulling the engine, but it will be tight, I would recommend unbolting the lower engine mounts, and raising the engine. That way you can also push it from side to side to give yourself more room on the side you are working on. You do not have to drain the oil. Pulling the valve covers will give you access to the spark plug gaskets. The manual calls for a small amount of TB1217H sealant on the valve cover.
