Hello and welcome to Just Answer.By left side do you mean the passenger side out the drivers side?
drivers side , car has 105,0000 miles should i go ahead and replace vc gaskets
i do have a repair shop but mostley acura honda lexus repairs
The valve cover gaskets are a common leak on this engine as well as the upper timing covers. Just make sure the leak is not coming from the timing covers before replacing the valve cover gaskets.

would you replace timing cover gaskets first , that looks like where the leak is coming from ,r they just a small paper gasket. one more bit of info please labor time for left & right thanks kelly
left & right timing cover gaskets
Thank you very much for the accept and the bonus!
If you suspect the timing covers then I would replace them first because you have to remove the valve covers to get the upper timing covers off. labor is 13.65 hours for both upper timing case covers.
