Q: Regarding valve cover gaskets

asked by on

My valve cover gasket on my 2003 hyundai accent is shot and is currently leaking a bit of oil, i'm going to replace it but when i look up the part to order it only gives me options for an accent gl or gs, would the gasket for a gs also fit on my gsi?
My car has an automatic transmission.

The valve cover gaskets will be the same for the GS or GSI. As long as the engine is a 1.6 liter engine you will not have any problem.
