The gasket of engine between the valve

valve cover gasket will leak oil all over of the engine. if its the head gasket you will over heat all the time white smoke out the exhaust and oil will look like a chocolate milk shake, or leak anti freeze between the head and block to the ground.

I want to tell u that the remparature is runing normal and there is no white milky in engine and if gasket is blown it still the car work normally or no.thx
