Default how do u replace valve cover gaskets

I have a 93' JDM H22A and I have two oil leaks one coming out of the timing seal. And one coming out of the top on the side right where the cover is on the top of the engine. both slow leaks but want to repair them. I also noticed a little oil on my spark plugs so I need to replace the tube covers too. Anyone no how to replace the tube covers and the valve cover gaskets?

go buy the gaskets, take the valve cover off

take the old gaskets off

put the new ones on....if you get your gaskets at honda they also have what's called hondabond....get some of that and put a light coating on the new ones

they just press into place

basically what he said. Just take your time, its not hard to change the gaskets but just double check your work, and it'll be alright. I might suggest if you have a covered area like a garage, or a friends garage, to use it. I just don't like the idea of having my engine open where dirt and debris could get in there. I can't have that
