Good morning,

I attached the set of sockets you will need. They do not specify the exact size of the socket but they are torx sockets. The hole set is $10.00.

I attached a picture of the bolt. Is this what you are referring to?

I believe so, the bolts are located in the valve cover.

In the valve cover? Please explain.

Sorry, I just got the YouTube video of you finding the issue.

Good find. It is never common for the plugs to be loose unless they were never torqued when installed.
