Valve cover gasket '95 saturn

I need to replace the valve cover gasket on my saturn. 4 cyl. with DOHC. It appears that I have to pull about a dozen bolts and the cover will come right off. Is that all there is to it? Seems too easy.
Thanks in advance.

Yeah, that'll probably do it. As long as there isn't anything sticking out over it or across it, should come right off. I don't remember the last time I had to look at a Saturn engine; it has that many bolts on the valve cover? will have the procedure with diagrams in the repair guide section.

Looks like you have 2 different types of valve covers..plastic and alum. Make sure you get the correct gasket and grommets as needed and don't over torque!

Thanks guys,
There were only 10 bolts instead of 12. The bolts go through a grommet and they have a shoulder that pulls down against the head so it almost impossible to over-tighten.
