Sticky is a great idea... I'm going to request this be looked at during my next oil change.

Why wouldn't it? As long as the engine is covered under powertrain then you are fine.

Oh man... i'm scared to check mine, I'm assuming there isn't a DIY video for changing out the valve cover gasket yet, is there?

By the way, for anyone that wants to read up on the service manual, it's called a "rocker" cover(it should be the same thing right?).

From the looks of it...it has lots of pieces to remove just to get to it.

There isn't a DIY vid for that yet, but if someone wants me to do theirs and film it, I'm all for it. I would've preferred to do mine as well, but the dealer was warrantying it so they had to do the work.

Have heard more and more about this condition lately. On other G35 forums too.

Definitely will be checking this before warranty is up. Gotta just love those plastic valve covers lol.

just noticed they didn't recalibrate my throttlebody... grrr!!! Pulled over to the side of the road and performed the procedure from memory

turn ignition to off position, wait at least 10 seconds.
turn ignition to on, wait 3 seconds
press and depress the gas pedal 5 time in 5 seconds
don't do anything for 7 seconds
hold down the accelerator pedal to the floor until CEL starts blinking, then release within 3 seconds after CEL is solid again.

[email protected], all this time, never knew that. That explains the amount of parts on that list to be replaced.

No wonder it leaks. Any aftermarket metal valve covers out there?

it's pretty easy to do. If you watch the spark plug replacement DIY video it will guide you through the process of removing each coil pack and then you could examine them to make sure there are no leaks.

I'm actually not so sure the valve covers are plastic; I don't think they are plastic actually, but I could be wrong.

I would love an aftermarket valve cover solution in something a little flashier than flat black
