valve cover removal on 92 camaro v-6

do I need to take off the intake manifold to get the passengr side valve cover off of a 92 camaro 3.1 liter v-6. I have a loud tapping on the passenger side valve cover. I need to get it off to see if a rocker arm came loose

Re: valve cover removal on 92 camaro v-6

Yes/no, plenum and runners need to come off. The lower intake stays. Of course that also means the fuel rail needs to be pulled. Quite the pain. The injectors can stay in the rail, and leave the fuel lines connected. The steel fittings into the aluminum rail tend to cross thread way too easy. The rubber feed lines give enough flex to move things out of the way.

If you have some compressed air, blow out the area around the injectors before lifting them out. Grit tends to build up in that area.

Mike,
I cant answer your question directly, but wanted to let you know to make sure that you dont mix the pushrods up if you end up taking them out for some reason. They are two different lenghts and you dont want to know how many bent valves I have repaired because mechanics did not pay attention to the pushrod lengths
