A while ago I changed the drive belts. The tight engine compartment makes getting good photos hard, so I'll just say that it is easiest to swap them out from underneath the car with your head by the driver's side wheel.
On top of that, while changing the spark plugs I noticed that some of the spark plug holes were full of oil when I was changing the plugs (not inside the cylinder, the recess the plugs go into). There are gaskets for these, but changing them requires that the valve cover be removed. This means that the valve cover gasket must be swapped out too, leaking or not. It is important to mention that the gasket is different on pre-VANOS and VANOS equipped cars. Be sure to get the correct gasket.
Just as before I removed the decorative cover from the engine, the coils, and the spark plugs. Next the valve cover came off. I should mention that the rear driver's side bolt for the valve cover is a little bit hard to reach. Be careful that you don't drop it someplace that it cannot be found, because it is a special item that they don't carry at the hardware store. A decent auto parts store will be able to order one for you.
With the cover off, we can see the old gaskets. They can simply be removed by pulling them off.
Another problem I was having is that the car was claiming it was low on coolant, even though it was not. The issue in this case was a bad coolant level sensor, located at the bottom of the radiator overflow tank.
At this point in time you can move the tank around freely. I disconnected the other end of the top hose from the tank and pumped as much coolant out as I could with a hand pump. There is a second hose on the bottom and an electrical connector for the sensor. I removed both of those as well.
