It would be hard to think if they are the yellow ones that used bad metal would still be unbroken since mid 2003 and 2002 model years.


Thanks for the info,I'll pull a cover as soon as the weather breaks here in the Northeast👍

To save time you might want to pop off the oil filler neck from right valve cover and with a small mirror
or bore-scope and look at the color of springs for #2 cylinder

Saves having to take off coil packs, mount, sparkplug wires and valve cover, might need a new gasket doing this
