The front can cover gasket is dry and fine. The rear is oily and gunky on just about all sides.
Now, my car doesn't use much oil at all. Between yearly services or 5000 miles it may need a litre. If I remove the cam cover and replace the rear cam cover gasket, I can't guarantee it'll get any better. I could make it worse.
As joss says new gaskets are always best option but if you are concerned as I said use some gasket sealant as an intermediate solution this will at least stop the leak for the time being.
Just make sure you clean all the surfaces with brake cleaner or alcohol before putting anything back together. And use the original gasket with a thin coat of sealant don't try to replace it with sealant . Make sure you clean the gasket aswell . Don't be frightened of it .
If you get stuck you can always come here for some more advice.
No leak is always better than a leak:thumbs:
