Is the leak 'FOR SURE' coming from the Head Gasket or the Valve Cover Gaskets? It is common for the Valve Cover Gaskets to leak and people mistakenly think it is a head gasket problem. If it is the Head Gasket leaking oil it is very hard to say how long you can drive the car, because it may 'Blow' at any time and we are heading into Summer, which will put maximum stress on the Head Gaskets due to the hotter temperatures.
