Spirit R/T valve cover gasket info
Boy--what next? I noticed a really bad oil smell about 2 months ago in my '91 R/T, found out it's the valve cover gaskets. The one in the rear is leaking just enough to drip down the back of the engine and make everything stink. I can't believe the trouble I'm going through to get a set of valve cover gaskets for this thing. Nobody in the surrounding area (Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine WI, and parts of ILL) had any. Finally the local Chrysler dealership found a couple down south but they want to charge me for everything from shipping to the long distance calls they had to make to get a set-comes to just over $100.00,(funny ain't it). Does anybody know of a cheaper route than this? Any and all suggestions welcome at this point and thanks in advance. Signed, My Life For A Gasket My (excellent) parts guy verifies that these are on national backorder. The Chrysler locator shows some sources. So does Partsvoice (1-800-328-8766 touchtone, 1-800-662-7499 9600 baud 8N1, or www.partsvoice.com). To use Partvoice via the 800 numbers, your ID number is 88+your area code. Part number for the gaskets is 4484489. List price is ~$43/pair (though if you're not getting a discount on parts from your dealer you need to talk to them about it or find another dealer). Anyway, contact Partsvoice and make your own calls. David Wright
