So I just noticed a little bit of smoke coming out from my scoop on my03 but it comes and goes. You only see it when the car is sitting idle or stopped, i noticed it maybe 5 times and the other night i finally was able to stop at a safe place to check where it was coming from. The smoke was coming from around the turbo area, it smells like wires burning. i took it to the dealer and had it checked out and they said my valve cover gaskets are leaking, the passenger side is worse then the drivers side, and the smoke is from the oil dripping onto the exhaust and that's the smell I'm getting. But it doesn't smell like oil, but anyway they wanna charge me $600 to replace the gaskets, are they something i can do myself or should i just let them do it?
