    Ok. I am away from home at an internship, I have no tools, and I don't know anyone. I also have no money. My valve cover gasket started leaking and now it is smoking quite substantially.

    First of let me start by saying I am by no means a mechanic I'm trying to learn how to fix things by myself and begin to learn about the components of my X (or any vehicle of that matter).
