what year is your vehicle? Edge/MKX? 3.5/3.7L? The valve cover will have to come off. Easier to do bank 2 (radiator side) than bank 1.

Watch macbwt's video on how to take the valve cover off. Although on a 2011, basically the same process to take off on a 2008. 2011 has 2 VCT solenoids per bank since both intake and exhaust are variably controlled. 2008 only has 1 as only the intake is variably controlled.


A new valve cover gasket is advised
