Are my valve covers leaking?

post-10510-138698172948_thumb.jpgI constantly have what I think is oil around my injectors. (it doesn't smell like fuel)I'm guessing it's my valve cover gaskets.hopefully these pictures will post and I can get other opinions.I should adjust my valves anyway.

Sure looks like valve covers to me... I would say the Napa sells gaskets for $6 bucks a piece... Not bad for $36 bucks to replace them all...

They are even less than that. $4.88 + tax here. This is the part number FPG VS50396R and they come with a one year warranty.

Mine leak as well, even after changing the gaskets. Well mainly/only #6. Not sure what the deal is. I am thinking either valve seats causing some sort of instantaneous pressurizing or blow by maybe, not sure. Just make sure where the gaskets seat on the head is very clean. If you have any crap there it will make an impression into the gasket and be a possible leak spot (might also be my issue).
