1996 Acura TL • 180,000 miles

I would like a step by step procedure for a valve gasket change and fuel filter change.

Fuel filter you may need a specialt tool to get it off, insert the tool and disconnect the line on both ends. Releive fuel pressure from schrader valve first though. What engine do you have?

They really don't give instructions for valve cover, but take off the 3 bolts that are in the arrows then the cover should come up. You'll need to move all lines as well asbracketry first though if any in theway remove teh old gasket and scrape areas clean install new gasket use 3m 8001 (yellow) cement if need to hold gasket in place and tighten bolts to 106 inchpounds.

It is bolted to the firewall and if you follow the fuel line from the fuel rail, you should be able to see it.
