Question about Cars & Trucks
Are you referring to the spark plug boots that go over the spark plug top? If so, you need to push these onto the spark plug until you feel a click...which means they should be properly connected...same feel on the other end of the spark plug wires...you should feel a click as they connect to the spark box individually. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: valve cover gasket leaking
When you buy the valve cover set, it will include the spark plug well "O" rings. Simply remove the valve cover and on the underside of the valve cover, you'll see the "O" rings that need replaced and you'll see exactly how the valve cover gasket itself fits.

try removing the bolts hold on the valve cover and once you do that take a razor blade and a little lube and careful scrape the old one off.

It is possible the tubes are leaking at the bottom but highly unlikely. There is next to 0 oil pressure in that area so the tubes would actually drain if leaking. I would start with the tube seals and gaskets as you have already planned and check it again later down the road like at the next oil change interval. You're on the right track for the repair, just be patient with the intake plenum and you'll do fine.

Testimonial: "Checked the sensor, found it to be dirty, cleaned it with carb cleaner. Truck runs alot better now. Thanks "
This problem is usually the result of worn rings but since you already did that, then check the passage that the PCV valve is connected to. It might be clogged, causing a restriction. If that isn't it, then drill a hole at least a quarter inch in size in the top of an old valve cover filler cap and install it. Drive the vehicle and see if things improve. If they do, then check to make sure that you have the correct PCV valve installed.
