WHAT IS A VALVE COVER GASKET?

Valve cover gaskets are the seal between your valve cover and the your cylinder head. The gasket's primary function is to keep an air tight seal to prevent your engine oil from leaking out. Typical valve cover gaskets may last anywhere between 50,000 to 70,000 miles give or take. Most valve cover gaskets are made of rubber; older vehicles may use cork gaskets. Over time, the gasket becomes brittle and may allow engine oil to seep through. The best way to prolong your valve cover gasket is to stay on top of regularly scheduled oil changes. Fresh engine oil keeps your valve cover gasket properly conditioned.
