You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.
When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

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.

If you have oil coming down between the transmission and the engine where they meet your problem is with the rear main seal. It seals the back of the crankshaft so no oil comes out. Over time it tends to leak especially if the oil changes haven't been done on time or you live on dirt roads. Where the transmission and engine meet there should be a metal shield but it may be already removed. Just pry that back and see if there is oil. Depending on the color tells your rear main seal for the engine or the front seal on the transmission. Hope that helps.

Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.
