Before or after the 12000 mile valve check? Mine leaked after taking it to the dealer for the valve shimming. I removed the cam cover to check the gasket and saw where the tech had used a screw-driver to remove the cam cover which resulted in cutting the gasket on both front corners.:mad:

Caution: Don't over-tighten the cam cover--use a torque wrench and tighten it only to specs. The bolts that hold the cam cover on go into the caps that hold the cams in place.

Mine came from the factory with a gasket sealer on the cam cover gasket--you may have to use something like ThreeBond liquid gasket on it to keep it from leaking.
