    i have oil leaking out from my valve cover.......only a lil when i rev it high,
    could this be caused by too much oil?? cuz i put too much oil in, its above the second hole, and i was just too lazy to jack it up and drain some.......

    is that why im leaking oil??
    or do i need to change the seal around the valve cover..................... :unsure:

    It is probably just the seal around the valve cover, but I also would sugest draining the right amount of oil out of the car, so you are at the right level.

    I had the same problem right after I took off and "sanded" my valve cover because yeah the seal, wasn't sealed properly and it wasn't torqued correctly.
