1999 Subaru Forester L 4 Cyl 2.5L

Engine

continued valve cover leak on one side with all new seals? Could the cover be warped or are there tricks to sealing?

any tips would be appreciated, can you take apart without replacing seals or should the gasket be replaced every time you remove the cover?

Hello
Hopefully the gasket did not move out of position when you re installed the valve cover. These engines are notorious for head gasket leaks and rear crank seal leaks . Make sure those are not your source of oil loss before you go too much further.
Hope this helps
