It takes a couple hours. Not sure of how long they charge to do it tho. I always do mine myself. Not that bad of a job for a DIY to tackle.


Thanks for the quick response. And this was definitely for a 99 Mitsubishi 3000GT?

Daniel Foster

do you mean valve cover gasket or do you mean head gasket cause the vlave cover gasket is simple as hell and doesn't cost much


Yes. The oil pan gasket is a little more involved than the valve covers but not hard at all. As Daniel asked are you sure they not talking about the head gaskets?


Definitely talking about the valve covers. Thanks for the feedback.


Ok valve covers are easy. You have to remove the upper intake to do the back one but that's easy too.

Daniel Foster

just make sure you cover the intake ports on the head other wise your liable to drop a bolt or washer or whatever in there then you will be doing the head gaskets when you remove the heads to get it back out,, trust me ive seen it happen many times, true story
