Does anyone know how hard it would be to change a valve cover gasket on the 2.8 V6 engine. i took my car in for an oil leak and it is coming from the passangerside of the engine. the shop wanted about 180 bucks for the whole job. Is that worth it? or is something worth while to look into doing myself?

Just my advice, but I would have the shop repair it- I had a reputable Audi shop tell me it was the valve cover on the passenger side and it turned out to be the cam seal- They replaced the cam seal and both value cover gaskets- It's a costly job, they worked with me on the labor fee for misdiagnose.
