The valve cover gasket is on as of last Friday. Ran to Walmart down the road to test it out and apparently didn’t tighten one bolt all the way which led to me tearing apart my car in 100 degree heat in the parking lot while standing in a puddle of oil. Surprisingly only one person stopped by and they asked if I needed a jump. Ha! I wish that was all.
Well ever since then it has been running great. Well other than the smoke coming from the engine bay. But I’m convinced it is residual oil and grime burning off the exhaust, that's what I'm going to tell myself but keep the tools in my passenger seat just in case. It’s pretty damn hard to see/clean on there. Also I'm not loosing any oil or coolant so should be good in that regard
