    Re: Where to get valve cover gaskets?

    Not sure if you have already purchased your gaskets but I just bought a set at Advanced Auto Parts yesterday. Not only was it the set of 4 gaskets for both sides but it also included 16 orings. The best part of this is that they had them in stock and the whole set was only 50 bucks!!! That was w/ taxes. I called the Cadillac dealer yesterday and they were asking 58 bucks plus tax for just one set. This is a no brainer. I hope this is of some use for Catera owners. I am replacing them in my Catera, along w/ resealing the oil cooler this weekend. If anyone has questions about changing the oil cooler, valve cover gaskets, spark plugs or spark plug wires let me know. I am going to try and take as many pictures as I can throughout this project.

    Anyone live near Albany NY that knows how to do this? Cadillac wants $1100 to do this job including parts and new oil cooler ($546). I just need someone to re-seal mine and put new valve cover gaskets on. Ill drive to where ever, I just dont have $1100. Ill provide the parts if some can provide me a price on the work......
