    you need a valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals if it was my situation I would replace spark plugs also . each spark plug is down in valve cover and there are seals around each tube they come with valve cover gasket kit . also you should replace the spark plug boots or wires . they swell up when exposed to oil
