Rear Valve Cover Gasket

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a 97 es300 and i have the front valve cover gasket off, im thinking about tackling the rear but I wanna know if i put the front back on today, and attempt the back tomorrow will i have to take the front off again?! Thanks in advance!?

another question, if I may, LOL, the spark plug rings,

they dont fit in the holes of the valve cover! Do iwrap them around the spark plug housings or do I keep trying to pry them into the valve cover? does the opening of the rings face up or down?!

No, you should not have to remove the front. You will have to remove the front injector brackets to get the intake plenum -- not manifold -- off.

Unless you got the wrong parts, the spark plug seals should fit. You will have to run a small wire or toothpick around the opening to get them to stretch over the spark plug tubes.
