BMW Valve Cover (N51 N52N) - Genuine BMW ..

Leaking valve cover gaskets are fairly common on BMWs. These leaks can be more than just a messy inconvenience: a leaking valve cover gasket can cause a vacuum leak, which creates problems with the engine management system. Additionally, oil commonly leaks into the spark plug wells causing deterioration of the spark plug connector boots and arcing of the ignition spark, which creates ignition miss-fires. (A common cause for a fault code of “random miss-fires” is oil in the spark plug wells.) Replacement of BMW valve cover gaskets can be relatively quick and easy on most models through the ‘80s and into the early ‘90s. On the 6- and 8-cylinder models from the early ‘90s on (those engines that have dual overhead camshafts), it may require a bit more work but is still not terribly difficult.
