Default oil leaking ontop of valve cover

Ok. My mechanic just replaced the older valve cover gasket and gromets a week ago. and I have oil, puddling up in the spark plug wells and on top of the valve cover gasket by cylinders 1 & 2 again. I'm so discouraged. Are there any recommendations that anyone could offer.

We did some research on the internet that the continuing cause could be that he valve cover could be the wrong cover or that pcv valve could be causing pressure build up. Is this true?

Take it back to your mechanic, maybe he pinched one of the gaskets when he assembled it.

Your mechanic blew it. The valve cover/spark plug tube seals are not sealing properly. And ... that's that!
