    check your torque, keep it about 84 to 89 inch pounds. don't over tighten. If it leaks, install again. You should apply a small amount of sealant at points where a change in surface, where a dip or the ends of the cams. Sometimes may help to put a small amount at a few points on the gasket to help keep ii in place when placing the valve cover.
