    This is common and yes if one replaces the Valve Cover Gasket and the Spark Plug Tube Seals, it will take care of the problem. I would do it soon, because the oil will ruin the Spark Plug Boots and cause misfires.

    This is a common problem. I just had the repair done at Midas. It was roughly $140 to have the valve cover and all of the plug rings reseated.

    Unexpectedly oil consumption also went down with the repair.
