Valve Cover Gasket

My student son has been told that his 1998 Mystique has a valve cover gasket failure that has resulted in leaking oil onto his plug wire. He needs a new gasket and plug wires to the tune of $250 with most of that being labor as they must pull the engine to accomplish it.

Does this make sense?

Thanks

I'll guess its a 4cyl for that price. It is a simple job that could be done with some basic tools.

Re: Valve Cover Gasket

Thank you very much for the help. I visited him yesterday and the repair went without a hitch. I also threw in new spark plugs, the old ones were worn down quite a bit.
