Oil leaking from the valve cover gasket dripping on the exhaust

If you don’t have the money to replace the valve cover gasket make sure you have the bolts tightened in the meantime to prevent any oil dripping down on the exhaust. Oil leaking from the valve cover gasket dripping on the exhaust will cause the smoke produced to rise and come out of the engine bay while the car is running. Make sure to have the excess oil cleaned off around it before you sell the car. This and the smoke leaves a very bad impression if you don’t.
