    The guy has some diction problem. No big deal. Don’t be too harsh on? people. What is your handicap? It seems the retard is you not him. Don’t take it too hard, though, just think (if you can) about it.

    @mctapout186 when the engine isn’t running the oil sits in? the oil pan at the bottom of the engine. Only when the car is running is it pumped through the valve area.

    @mmdaniels33 it’s ok, but you might get a premature leak you wouldn’t have if you used it. However I would leave the work you did in place, you don’t want to be pulling the cover off again only? to put silicone. You really want to seat the gasket one time. (I’m not a mechanic… I just think I know a couple things ,lol)

    is the oil going to spill as soon as i take off the valve cover?? idk but on? my 5sfe Camry the engine is kind of tilted at an angle.

    There? no signs of oil on the ground

    the leaking gasket most likely occured at some stage between the 85oookm to 100 000km stage. It was dectected at the 100 000 km service . In total that 15 ooo km i had a leaking gasket in one way to see it. next time is at 105 000. There would you agree the gasket should be ok to put of for another 5000 km?

    I think as long as your oil light? is not on you could wait until your next oil change.

  23. Sweetdeno22

    or its MUST BE DONE ASAP?
