Replacing your car's Valve Cover Gasket


Step 6: Optional - Suck out any oil

If your gasket failed like mine, you're gonna need to pull some excess oil out of the plug wells. A plastic turkey baster comes in handy here :P I used a pipette - it is what I had.

If there's only a little oil, you can just pull the plugs and let it drain into the cylinder -- it will burn off when you start up. I did this with the little bit of oil I could not recover.
