I changed the valve cover gasket about a year and a half ago. I had a problem with oil leaking out of the valve cover. It was a large leak and seemed to only happen after I had stopped and shut off the engine. It could have been leaking while running but I didn't notice. I would have a pool of oil under the car. I would say at least a cup or two. It would only take a couple times and I would be down a quart. I changed the EGR valve and the PCV valve and it is still leaking heavily. Any ideas what else it could be? Thanks for your time.

You may need to redo the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals, and this time properly torque the bolts to 106 in/lbs.

No problem, and obviously you will need a new gasket set.
