V6 Valve Covers leaking...

where do i start?? they are so bad that the engine is losing a quart every 2-3 days...it drips onto the ground in four spots the size of quarters...just after an hour of sitting!!!


i can buy the gaskets, thats not a big deal, and i can handle the front one, unfortunately, the one thats leakig the worst is the one thats against the firewall...how should i go about this???

its not that bad, it was the first thing i did when i got my car, remove the intake pleanum and put it off to the side, then you have pretty easy access to the valve cover (change your spark plugs while you're there)
