I've been leaking oil from the valve cover for a while and need to have the
gasket replaced. I'm also coming up on a timing belt replacement and I
wonder if it would be best in terms of cost/labor to have them done at the
same time? I know about having the water pump done with the timing belt,
but I don't know if doing the valve cover gasket involves any related tear
down. Thanks for any help.
When I had my 2002 Sonata GLS the valve cover job wasn't that hard,
just took a lot of time. If that Elantra is 4 Cyl it shouldn't take
you longer than 5 hours from start to finish to do it and save
yourself the $400-600 they might charge you to put in a $25 dollar
