Customer Question
2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Mitsubishi...
2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Mitsubishi 3.0 V6 engine. Need to replace Valve Cover Gaskets. Front shows oil leak dripping down onto engine block and leaking onto pavement. I can replace front one, but am concerned that I can't replace rear one without removing other components, and therefore causing more work and cost by needing to replace other gaskets or seals, just to get to rear Valve Cover.
Can you advise me as to what would be required to replace rear gasket?

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
