If you're talking about the valve cover gasket, it's very easy to
replace and you can do this yourself. The gasket is only a few
dollars. The trick to avoid leaks is to make sure the gasket
sealing surface is clean before you put the new gasket on, and
don't over-tighten the bolts. They only need to be hand-tight,
otherwise you crush the gasket.
