I'm pretty sure Chrysler never put a 4.0L engine in a PT Cruiser (V6? V8?). And since the valve cover gasket is located between the valve cover and the cylinder head, there is no bolt that holds just the valve cover gasket in place - all the bolts hold the valve cover in place. If there is excess oil around one of those bolts, you have a break in the gasket (or a bad gasket if the gasket is for the bolt only) or the bolts are not tightened to specification.
First off, make sure you use a new valve cover gasket and replace and dogged bolts. Tighten them just enough to squeeze the gasket. The purpose is only to keep oil inside the engine and not leak out the valve covers... you aren't bolting down a head gasket here! Use an opposite pattern across the valve cover(s) to tighten them evenly.
drain the oil first , remove the bolts around the oil pan and ease away from bottom of engine block,make sure you clean off the old gasket thoroughly , use some liquid gasket , very small amount if your fitting a ready made gasket to hold it in place ,otherwise use the liquid gasket as per the instructions, change the oil filter as well, refit the drain bolt and refill with oil run for a few minutes recheck level , top up if required and check new gasket for leaks
remove the valve cover by undoing screws/bolts around the edge may have to gently prize the cover away from its seating with a flat screwdriver clean off old gasket material fit new gasket to the covet the refit the cover
put your car on ramps remove transmission pan remove all bolts save a couple to slowly loosen so the pan can slightly drop open and drain.be sure to have a replacement gasket and see owners manual for amount of fluid to be used and type.
If you look closely at the dome light cover you will notice two small notches in one side of the cover. Simply take a knife and put into the notches with a gentle prying motion. The cover should come right off and you should have access to the light
