Oil Filler Tube removal

Recommended Posts

I have a leak where the oil filler tube goes into the drivers side valve cover.

I tryed to lightly twist it out and pull it out. nothing budged.

 

I want to remove it and replace a gastet or dope it up with rtv real good.

 

I don't want to break it off in the valve cover though.

Thanks for the info in advance

I think I found a gasket part number for the filler tube, but the book does not show how it comes out.

 

 

 

 

 

Pull the valve cover off. Easiest way to fix this. I am not clearly remembering, but I think it is bolted in or screws in. RTV will fix it. My old `97 did it also, and it wiggled. RTV will work. I also changed valve cover gaskets while they were off.

The filler tube unscrews out of the valve cover. You will probably need to use a pair of pliers or a cresent wrench to get it out. RTV around the top of valve cover should fix the problem, but don't use to much you don't want it to get on your valves.

OK, thanks for that info. I have twisted it counter clockwise by hand hard as I could and she would not budge. I just did not want to break something off inside the valve cover and have to pull it if I did not have to.

 

It is just that the filler tube seeps a little onto the cover and it is the only leak on the whole truck and I just can't stand it anymore :cheers::crazy::smash::smash:
