V6 Valve Covers

Question: How do you change the valve cover gaskets?

Answer: It takes a very complete 1/4" drive socket set to remove the valve covers without having to first remove the upper and middle pleneums. The Fiero 2.8 (due to using alloy valve covers) utilizes a "rubber" gasket. These are normally reuseable, and may reseal with just "snugging" them down (overtightening will distort them). They were installed "dry" at the factory, but a VERY light coating of Permatex Ultra Black sealant will help with sealing if the valve covers are removed/gasket replaced. Make sure that any gasket has the suffix "R" behind the part #.
