    look at the valve covers, some are held in place with 6 bolts some with 3. Do one at a time keeping the work area very clean. Clean valve cover and have clean hands when putting gasket in. Then, just reverse removal process. If you are unsure see a mechanic. I am assuming your problem is oil showing up around the spark plugs.
