Question about Cars & Trucks
Valve cover gasket. (see image)
You can try tightening them before you replace, but with that high mileage, I would replace it for sure.
Ask the parts place what the torque specs are for the bolts, and if they don't know, you can call a chevy dealership and ask someone in the service drive.
They may not want to give the info out, but you can ask nice.
Easy fix, just make sure you don't drop anything in there once the cover is off and you gotta clean up the cover and lip of the head where it installs.

I'm fairly certain that the parts stores carry the oil filter adapter gasket. Check around for it and make sure both surfaces are very clean. I like to use a FILM of sealant on both sides of the gasket and install. The reason why you use the sealant is to compensate for any irregulatities of both surfaces. You also might want to install a new oil pressure sending unit to the adapter while you have it off. That is another place where you could have a leak. They like to wear out prematurely also.
