BMW Valve Cover Gasket Kit (E39 E46 E60 E53 E83) - 11120030496KT

A complete valve cover overhaul kit, features Elring gaskets

If your BMW smells like burning oil it is likely due to a leaking valve cover gasket. With age the rubber deteriorates and becomes brittle losing its seal to the cylinder head.

This kit is assembled to help make buying the correct parts a piece of cake. It includes valve cover gasket set with spark plug tube seals, oil filler cap gasket, valve cover washers (metal) and rubber sealing rings. Make sure the valve cover and cylinder head on your BMW is leak free with this complete gasket kit.

We recommend using black RTV to seal the half moons to the front of the cylinder head by the VANOS unit. Apply a thin uniform sealing bead of high temp RTV to the edges of the half moons on the VANOS unit. This will ensure leak free operation. This should also be done in the rear of the engine on the half moons as well. Tightening torque for the valve cover cap nuts is 11Nm (100 in lbs) of torque in an alternating Z pattern.

Everything You Need

Comes with everything you need except for the RTV sealant. Everything fit, and I am now leak free.

Exerienced Wrencher

Replacing the valve cover gasket is a very doable job for an average do-it-yourselfer with a basic set of metric tools. Symptoms that the valve cover has failed are oil wetness on the right (passenger) side of the engine and a "popcorn smell" as described by my daughter which is the oil hitting the exhaust manifold and burning. Often the unseen interior spark plug well seals become brittle and fail (part of the valve cover gasket set) allowing oil to puddle on top of the spark plugs and soak the associated coil packs which can lead to shorts and failure. So if you're into the "while I'm at it" maintenance model, I suggest replacing the spark plugs and coil packs at the same time. Everything is "plug-and-play". The FCP kit is very complete including all of the smaller valve cover nut seals and even the associated washers. Quality of the components is very good. Expect about three hours for the repair at a relaxed pace depending on how bad the leak(s) were and how much clean up you'll have to conduct before reassembly.

Note that you'll need to re-use four of the metal washers from your existing valve cover set-up, as this kit only includes 11 new ones.

very easy! everything i needed! i would recommend watching an installation video. just to make it go quicker when you do it. the part that took me the longest was getting the old brittle gasket off of the valve cover and cleaning off all the crap it left behind on the valve block. and not dropping any old brittle gasket pieces into the engine

seems to be holding up so far. worst part of the whole thing was getting the old gasket out of the valve cover.

Bmw Valve Cover Gasket Kit

Great fit - includes all new valve cover bolt gaskets. Highly recommend replacing your M54 valve cover gaskets and your oil filter housing (flange) gasket at the 100K mark - mine started leaking at 105K and original gaskets were very brittle. Indicator of valve cover gasket leaking is oil smell inside of car (drips down on top of exhaust manifold shield); indicator of oil filter housing gasket failure is oil leak at front of engine (passenger side) - drips down the power steering pump and then flows backward...Other 100K item to check (and you WILL have to replace it eventually) is the crankcase ventilation valve (CCV), AKA PCV. Replace these items - along with changing your auto tranny filter/fluid and you're good for the next 100K. Great parts at a reasonable price!
