So! I said I would update here and update I will! Completed the Valve Cover gasket + new plugs and expansion tank/retainer bracket replacement jobs on my own on Sunday. The valve cover gasket actually wasn't too hard to do but was a little tedious. Also, putting it on and taking it off without taking the charcoal filter housing off above it is a pain. I would recommend removing that first to anyone doing this job. The expansion tank.... now that job turned into a most trying endeavour. The tank I purchased apparently was ever so slightly different than the original. I assembled the whole thing and it leaked. Reassembled and it leaked AGAIN. Turns out, when inserting your expansion tank, there is a small piece that slides on to the retainer bracket. Firstly, I was forced in to re-using an o-ring (bad bad bad I know) from the old tank because the new one didn't come with one. If this piece doesn't seat properly at the same time as the main t-stat port next to it, you will develop a huge leak. Which I did. So I ended up assembling the retainer bracket and expansion tank outside of the car to ensure proper fitment and then installed the whole assembly. Next up, the PCV system and oil filter housing gasket. The PCV system, I actually took Monday off to perform this job (this is my wife's DD so I took her to work, had from 10-3 to perform the job,). Turns out the hose clamps and throttle body got the best of me. I managed to get all the way down to the throttle body, get it removed (WARNING, the BavAuto video does NOT mention the fifth nut you must remove that connects the conduit box to the throttle body!), and started taking PCV hoses off when I realized I was completely out of time. So this basically turned into a dry run, since I reassembled everything from here. Hey, new throttle body gasket in, new intake boot in and new DISA gasket. Speaking of the DISA gasket, is there a trick to getting all of the old one out? It had turned into a sticky goo and I was able to scrape most of it out. Also, I was unable to get the pin out to replace the flapper, and now it's making noise so I feel like I broke something. Is there a trick to getting that pin out? I have watched a bunch of videos and some people look like the cut the plastic off that surrounds the pin. I'm not sure that's right though.
