    Im with Jay on this, I have never had a leaking valve cover gasket problem, and you only need the rtv in the corners (also stated already).
    There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

    yep, one time is all I need too lol. My Protege GT was COVERED in oil from the valve cover gasket and disti o-ring when I bought it...just nasty that ppl can leave a simple $30 job that takes 20 minutes that long.

    Thanks for the info, my valve covers are leaking again after having replaced the gasket less than 2 years ago. I'm gonna order some of that "right stuff too" (I have always just used the regular black RTV). Are the OEM gaskets that much better than Felpro's?
