Valve Cover Help

If someone has taken off your valve cover before on the H23a1 for whatever reason, then please help me out. I have a brand new cover I wanna throw on. But need to take the old one off. I wanted to know a procedure if possible so I can see exactly what to do, because I know its a sensitive area... If I don't get any biters on this one, I will attempt myself and see how it goes lol. Most likely ok, but can never be to sure. Also tips for installing the new one, I have the gasket, and the 4 ring gaskets, but where do I put the ring gaskets, on the inside where the sparkplugs enter?

If someone can help me out, that would be well appreciated thank you.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate

Re: Valve Cover Help

i assume ppl might have write ups for this man, if not on here on other websites weather its a h23, h22, or f22 or basically any other motor that has a valve cover its typically the same procedure... take the plugs out, un bolt all the nuts on the valve cover, remove all seal washers (underneath the bolts), try and get any and everything out of your way to pull the valve cover off, then it should be able to come up, replace the spark plug tube seals (note the direction they go in) and the valve cover gasket its self will have a seat to sit in on the valve cover, install the valve cover... (optional but preferred: on tight 90* bends on the valve cover ppl like adding sealant on those bends to help with oil not leaking passed these stressful areas), reverse the steps making sure its all clear of other objects so the valve cover doesnt get cut or falls off when installing, make sure it seats well, and then put on the new or used bolt washer gaskets... torque all the bolts nice and slowly in an X pattern formation working your way from the out side corners to the middle (the bolts are very easy to snap off so do not over tighten) and then make sure you put your plugs back in in the same order you pulled them out (yes it does matter which spark plug wire goes to which just make sure you label them or take a picture before pulling them out and starting this easy A project. research next time dude. and hopefully what i just said will help 1000's of others with in the next year lol

thanks for the help man, and I did research a lot, looked on here, google, youtube, couldn't find anything to my engine, I did find some videos, so I had the basic idea from that, but just wanted to make sure from someone who has done it before. So thanks.

I agree man , i don't know why people gotta be D1cks about everything. If they have the knowledge and know how and are looking at the thread, might as well help someone out if your going to post anything rather than bashing them.

Don't sweat the small shiz kid. Just simply ignore posts like that and move on.

Good luck with your valve cover.

Re: Valve Cover Help

It's a pretty easy task man make sure both surfaces are. Lean of any old gasket maker and what not. You don't want something as simple as a valve cOver leaking oil you know.

when you say make sure its clean of gasket maker, you mean the motor where the cover connects to it right? clean it of any gunk left by the old gasket and gasket maker? if yea how do you recomend i clean it, just a rag? or does it harden after time?

Re: Valve Cover Help

Yeah both surfaces on the head and the valve cover. Just scrape it of it shouldn't be to hard. Wipe it clean with a rag and Then do as hprelude said and you should be set and do as previously stated and be very careful when tightening the nuts when reinstalling they do breaks easy they also strip easy as well so be careful.

Re: Valve Cover Help

the new gasket should be rubber so dont us silicone except in the corners by the cams...and yea make sure all the old gasket is removed..lightly scrape off any old gasket material off the cylinder head with a razor but be careful not to knick the metal cuz it can cause a small leak...press the gasket in with ur fingers and place the valve cover back on the engine..before bolting it down look and make sure the gasket hasent moved cuz u dont wanna pinch it it...if its still where it should be then ur good to go ahead and bolt that sucker down..no worries its fairly simple bro...after 50 miles or so check to make sure ur valve cover bolts are still tight and that there is no leaks...good luck..oh and make sure u put the plugs wires going to the correct spark plugs otherwise u will have all kinds of trouble lol

Re: Valve Cover Help

Don't worry about the d bags bro, working on your car yourself is the best way and if you haven't done something before no matter how simple it is it doesn't hurt to ask! Lookin forward to a DIY on it too

Re: Valve Cover Help

96' Changing Valve Cover Spark Plug Seals - Drive Accord Honda Forums
Need Advice: Replacing Valve cover gasket

Remove bolts on top of valve cover, use a putty knife or a paint scrapper to remove old gasket from valve cover and cylinder head be careful not to get anything in the head. use a type of silicone to secusre new gasket to valve cover and use only on the valve cover side. a little bit will do a few spots around it and put cover back on. tighten bolts from center out and do not over tighten. just snug them up.

ENG: Another valve cover How To

This should cover the removal, enjoy painting your valve cover. Sometimes, I do not understand why crap gets out of hand, Then Preludepower.com comes to mind.

Re: Valve Cover Help

Hey buddy. I heard a wise man say that only an idiot thinks he knows everything, true knowledge is knowing you can never know it all. True wisdom is having the balls to says you don't know and strength comes when you ask for it. So don't let some jerks get you down cuz you have the balls to question yourself. Also don't be scared to wing things every once in a while. We learn best from our mistakes. Keep taking on the projects and you'll be a natural in no time.
