I would definitely. It's just a few bucks and saves you from leaking oil all over the place and having to do it again. Not that I learned it the hard way or anything...

Keep in mind that this is a Contour valve cover so you need the valve cover gasket designed for it. The engines are the same but the gaskets are not.

Go to a junkyard and pull some. As long as the cover comes with the metal grommets you should be able to use your current valve cover bolts.

He meant to call Tousley Ford and ask for Steve to get the bolts you need.
