What makes you think the valve cover was leaking,was oil coming from there.Exactly where is it leaking from.If the oil filter is tighten too tight,then it will leak,also by the oil filter is the oil pressure switch,it's screwed into block,it can leak.The rear oil seal can leak,where engine and transmission meet.If valve cover is not installed correctly,it will leak and loose compression.

SOURCE: i have an 86 honda

There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

SOURCE: leaking valve cover gaskets

The problem is over tightening.

If you over tighten your fastners you will sqeeze your gaskets too much and they WILL leak.

You can use black silicon sealant LIGHTLY but you don't really need it. If you have the V6...the torque on them nuts are only 80 in lbs each

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

Wipe the cover and the area below it clean with some rags. Then run the car awhile and check if the clean area has new oil that leaked out. Usually oil leaking from the top of the engine is the valve cover.

Smoking under th hood on the driver upperside


Its likely on oil leak from the valve cover thats leaking down onto the exhust manifold. You could try snuging up the bolts that fold the cover on but don't try to over thighen them to the point that you distort or crack the cover even is the keySometimes this will stop or slow the leak but most of the time the gasket will need to be replaced
