well valve cover gaskets are an easy fix don't know if you cando the main seals but if oil got on the timing belt it will break sooner so you can change the valve cover gaskets and take the timin belt cover off and look at the timing belt check its condition and put it back together and see if that was your problem if it was good if not get the main seal changed by a shop
