    I have a 99 civic LX. The lower right (when standing in front of the engine) valve cover bolt is seeping oil. Initially I thought it was accumulation from me missing the hole (not a common problem btw ;)) when changing oil. Cleaned it good with some brake clean, and it keeps seeping back. Not a lot, but enough to notice. The valve cover gasket itself is not leaking...front OR rear.

    Anyone seen this before in civic's?

    Thanks,
    -P
