just had dealership look for source of leak on my taurus and they said it was the timing chain cover gasket. they stated that the engine had to be pulled to do this and might as well replace oil pan gasket and others as well...long story short wanted $1900 !!!! Can this gasket be done at home???

it can but it is a pita. the bigger the hands you have the worse it is. you have to support the engine with a jack or hoist and remove the motor mount to give you access. by lowering and raising the jack you can reach difficult bolts. it is a pain and time consuming
