03 valve cover gasket
Looks like I have as leaky passenger side valve cover gasket. Mechanic friend said its a rubber gasket shouldn't be bad just tighten the bolts. Since its rubber what causes it to fail? Can I just tighten the bolts?
Its a common problem, just buy new gaskets its not too hard of a fix. If you tighten the bolts down uneven you could damage the valve cover or if you tighten them too much you could break them off.
Bolts will only tighten so much, only true way is to replace. Its not bad maybe 30 minutes to get your tools out/swap it and clean up
