Will be changing out a valve cover gasket on my friend's 95 XJ in the near future.
I've replaced gaskets on a few different cars before.
Anything I need to know? Do I need sealant in addition to the gasket?
Thanks in advance.

There are decent instructions for that in the Haynes manual for the XJ. If your buddy is going to be working on his XJ a lot, it might be worth a few bucks to pick that up. I used my Haynes manual quite often when I had my 2000 XJ. It was the first vehicle where I learned to do a lot of the maintenance myself. Unfortunately there isn't one for the KK or I would have bought it!

Thanks. I'll be surprised if it's at all difficult. Can't be any harder than the valve cover gaskets on my last car.
