So my valve cover gasket middle front started leaking a little out of the blue. I have seen where people have replaced the plastic junk cover with the contour metal one and haven;t had a leak since...thoughts? Anyone done this yet?

Don't you just love plastic valve covers???

I don't.

Not all Contour will work (VCT on '98-up) and make sure you get the bolts that go with it as they are configured different. Early Focus had metal covers as well before they went plastic.

Well I couldn't find any around my area so for now I picked up a new one. 78.00 with cap and gasket.
I will get one between now and when this one fails.
I found a few places that sell reconditioned online for 60 + s&h. I'm sure I'll just pick 1 of those up
