    Hello All,

    Just another newbie looking for help. I appear to have valve cover gasket leaks. Have already tried tightening the screws and they are not loose. As I have never done something like this before I would like to give it a try because I am interested and cheap. Will also change te spark plugs at the same time.

    Have watched this youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVW4iVjyHhI , but it appears that there are variations to the engine.

    Here are some parts for my vin: 5TBBT54107S452644

    Valve Cover Left gasket: 112130F010

    Valve Cover Right gasket: 112140F010

    Semicircular Plug Seal: Three Bond 1207b Why are all videos using white when this is black?

    Saprkplug Tube Gasket: 1119350010

    Sparkplugs: Quantity 8; Part# SK20Rll, 3297

    Attached are a few pick of my 2UZ-FE 8 cylinder engine.

    Pleas let me know of anything I may be missing or if you have any suggestions.

    Thank you

    Those gaskets of concern get very brittle over time and need to be replaced as you can see by yours are leaking. The most important part of the job is the application of sealant at the areas were the sharp corners of the gasket go on the head. I would get what Toyota uses for the sealant. I know there are others on the market but I would use what Toyota uses.
