Ok so i was looking around my engine today and i noticed that 2 of the bolts that hold the valve cover on is leaking, What could make this leak ? I have checked to see if they are tight and they are , could it be that they are just worn out and need replaced and if so what is the tourqe setting.

Any help would be great

The gasket is probably bad. You'll need to remove the valve cover and install a new gasket.

To get the torque specifications, buy a Chilton's manual. They're like 15 bucks, and you can use them for so much.
