I got it at oriellys they had a couple options they gave me the wrong one the first time took cove in and got the right one fixed all the leaks I had. It was 6 bucks and some silicone gasket maker the blue stuff worked great for me hardest part cleaning the old gasket off. Good luck any questions just pm me.|

Thankfully I have the aluminum one!
Can anyone answer me why the gaskets are as cheap as $3 or as expensive as $50? Whats the difference? Why would you want a $50 gasket? Just curious....learning!!

|mike_b_ar||If you have the 4.2 with a plastic valve cover, go ahead and invest in an aluminum one. The plastic could be the source of your leaks. Took me two gaskets to figure that out.|

Also, why when looking on rockauto and even on O'rileys websites, there is the valve cover gaskets as cheap as like $3-6 but as expensive as $50? What is all that about? I was hoping to just get one that was a few bucks, not really wanting to spend $50 on a gasket.

Doing Valve Cover Gasket
Gonna start pricing out everything I need to do the Valve Cover Gasket. This is gonna be the biggest mechanical job I have ever done on my own. I was thinking of getting a gasket from Rockauto.com. Anything else I need? Any other job I should do, while I am doing that?
Advice, tips, suggestions are all appreciated.
