Possible oil adapter leak fixed.

Hey everyone. This is just a tip for other noobs/intermediate level wrenchers like myself. Basically I was dripping a little bit of oil constantly for the past couple weeks and after inspecting it and doing some research online I came to the conclusion it was my oil adapter o rings that were leaking. (oil dripping off the lowest point like the oil pan, only on passengers side, etc) and before I took it all off and changed the o rings, I realized about 5 of my valve cover bolts were loose enough to tighten by hand. So I tightened them up, took it for a drive and sure enough that was my problem. Probably and obvious thing to overlook for most of you, but this may help a few others so I thought Id post. Dont overlook the simple things!! Cheers

Last time I pulled my valve covers almost all of them were barely finger tight. Good tip!
