1 take out the bolts 6 i believe 7/16 socket remove the small bolts 2 pry the valve cover off 3 clean the old gaskets off the valve cover and motor 4 clean the valve cover and paint the valve cover light blue so you can see any leaks that may happen // i dout if you will have any 5 put a small amount fo permatex (BLACK) it works well with oil and it will hold the gasket in place once you put the gasket on the on the valve cover put a small amount on the bottom of the gasget/// you will have permatex on both sides of the gasket 6 now you are ready to in stall tha valve cover back on the motor and put in all the bolts finger tight once all the bolts are in you want to snug the bolts don't try to tighten the bolts to much or you will cut the new gasket 7 now that every thing is back in check your oil level and run the engine for ten min this will set up the new gasket and give the permatex a chance to cure here is a video for reference voice is annoying but.. it will help ( not your vehicle but same idea) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7CccL0vSYk
