For anyone suffering from an oil leak around the valve cover gasket of the 2.2L '2200' engine, here is some help. The gasket is quite inexpensive and not difficult to replace.

Oil stained engine:

To Fix, buy a new gasket:

Remove the air intake resonator box:

Then remove the fuel rail cover:

Then remove the valve cover:

Clean the mating surfaces well:

Then reverse the process:

Do a little cleaning, and you're done!

Just in case, what's the Gm torque spec for when refastening the cover?

shhhh it's going to blow everything out of the water.

"Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you."
