    Ok, so I removed the valve cover, painted it, and then as I put it back on, one of the 5 bolts snapped while I was tightening it. I know I put to much pressure on it. It snapped indie of the threads, so I will drill this out. I'm shooting oil for about 2 days now. Autozone doesnt have the valve cover bolt, and I can't really find this.
    Anyone please tell me where to get it? Any where besides a honda dealer, because they rip you off, and it's not anywhere close to my house.

    Next time use a torque wrench and tighten them to the appropriate spec. It's usually around 8 lbs for most Honda valve cover bolts. Check a repair manual to be sure...
