DIY Success Story
When my dad and I were changing the
spark plugs on my Saturn, we noticed
oil leaking around them. My dad said it
was from a leaky valve cover gasket.
We bought a new gasket for $20 and
had it installed in about 20 minutes—it
was really easy. But a few weeks later it
was leaking again. We didn’t know we
had to smear silicone sealant over the
timing cover joint. We redid the whole
job, including the goop step this time,
and it’s been leak-free ever since. Best
part is, I figure I saved about $100!
