88 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 SMOKE amp VALVE COVER GASKET GOOP

  • 1988 JEEP

I replaced the valve cover gasket with the blue stuff.(Form a gasket) --because the previous installed gasket (rubber) was squished and slid and was leaking. Now my car has this terrible poison smell like the stuff is burning and the car idle is irratic I almost have to drive w/two feet and its an automatic! The smoke is coming from under the hood. It's not leaking oil anymore but it sure is smoking.

Also, before this gasket was changed, the car would act crazy like it was possessed and the rpms would go up by themself (like the pedal was
stuck) I'd try putting it in neutral to calm it down but it didn't always wo

Do you
have the same problem?
