Nissan VQ35 engine has a very common issue, the spark plug tube valve cover starts leaking from as low as 45,000 mile, but even sooner in some cases. To fix it you would have to buy new OEM valve covers from the dealer and they are very expensive.
This gasket grommet kit put together by TORQEN will solve the leak at a fraction of the cost.
In the kit:
- 6 spark plug grommets
- 3D printed DIY Alignment tool
- Nissan OEM Genuine Valve Cover Gaskets (right and left)
- NISSAN OEM PCV VALVE O-ring seal
- Permatex 89145 Ultra Grey Rigid High-Torque RTV Silicone 99g

| Text: Had the misfortune to discover one of my seals had given up last week, ordered one of these kits, delivered very very promptly and job done. Obviously worth taking some time and care when centring/aligning the cutting tool but all good, genuine Nissan gaskets and silicone gasket all included as are the new seals. |
Make sure you allow 24 hours for the silicone gasket to cure, been for a good run out today, popped the coil packs off again to double check and all good - no leaks. Certainly worth the extra time and effort for the savings involved against the cost of new Rocker Covers.
