Removing and replacing valve cover bolt


Recommended Posts

Hi all, Finally getting around to addressing my oil leak. Since some of it might be seeping through one of the valve cover bolts, I figured I may as well replace the bushing.


Is it a bad idea to remove and replace just one bolt/bushing? (Actually plan to re-use bolt, but swap out old bushing for new). Is it better to remove all 4 bolts, replace bushings, and torque all 4 in the usual criss-cross pattern?


Kind of silly, but I may as well ask.

You can remove just the one bolt/seal without any side issues as long as the bolt will come out of the cover without using undue force.


If the bolt doesn't want to come out without a lot of force then I recommend removing the cover.
