Be sure that you have indeed taken all the bolts out. There should be one way in the back as well. If you are absolutly sure they are all out then take a flat head screw driver or a chisel and along where the gasket would be gently set the point end of the tool you use on that gasket and tap with your palm or a hammer. The gaskets dry to the surface and it takes a bit to break it free. Let me know what happens. Don't worry about the gasket as you will need to replace it when the cover is off any way. The Raz

What tools do I need to replace my valve cover gasket?


Combination wrench set 1/4 " to 1" and/or 6mm to 19mm box-end & open-end or deep-well and short socket sets same size as wrenches with a 3/8" and 1/2" drive sets, Torque wrench, soft-faced hammer ( plastic or rubber ). The proper torque for valve cover mounting bolts is 85 inch-pounds for 1994 and later years.
Remove crankcase ventilation tube and hose from valve cover, Remove wire loom clips, note the locations of the studs.
Remove accelerator cable, kick-down cable and cruise-control cable from the snap in clips on top of valve cover, disconnect them at the throttle body .
Remove the three bolts and the control cable bracket.
Remove the valve cover bolts and lift cover off. If cover is stuck use a soft-face mallet to tap on the cover to break it loose.
DO NOT PRY ON THE gasket flange.
Contact me if you futher help.

1988 jeep wrangler with oil leak on top of engine and can smell it inside while driving.is it a easy fix?


MOST OIL LEAKS COME FROM A BAD GASKET! IF YOU CAN LOCATE THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK, YOU CAN FIX IT! IT COULD BE JUST A VALVE COVER GASKET LEAK! YOU CAN UNBOLT THE VALVE COVER, REMOVE IT, TAKE THE OLD GASKET OUT, CLEAN UP THE INSIDE, TO INSURE THERE IS NO OLD GASKET STUCK ON THE COVER! PUT THE NEW GASKET ON, AND REMOUNT THE VALVE COVER! RULE OF THUMB: WHEN TIGHTENING IT DOWN, START WITH THE MIDDLE BOLTS, SNUG THEM UP, THEN WORK YOUR WAY TO THE OUTSIDE! ONCE YOU HAVE SNUBBED THEM UP, GO BACK TO THE MIDDLE, AND TURN THE BOLT 1/8 TO 1/4 TURN EACH IN THE SAME WAY ( FROM THE MIDDLE- OUT!

Valve cover is stuck


Take a putty knife or similar and tap it between the valve cover and engine. The gasket sealant is holding the cover on. When you replace the valve cover you will also use a sealant after scraping the old off.

I believe that year had distributorless ignition, instead it uses a form of coil on plug ignition system.

If you open the hood, stand at the front of the vehicle. Look to the left side of the engine, around the bottom of the valve cover (The valve cover is where the oil fill cap is. The oil fill cap is on top of the valve cover), at the bottom of the valve cover on the left side you will see a series of humps. Those series of humps is the coil packs, the coil packs are all in one long piece held down by three or four bolts.

Take out those bolts, gently pry up at the ends of the coil pack and it will eventually come out. You'll see on the bottom side the spark plug boots are attached to the coil pack. After you get the ignition coil pack off, you will see the spark plugs under where the coil pack came from, the boots on the coil pack sit directly on the spark plugs.
