You cannot use the old bolts to retorque the heads. They are torqure to yield bolts. You must get new bolts.

Torque for valve cover bolts is 7 to 10 ft. Lbs . Tighten the bolts in a criss-cross pattern .

Go to Autozone or a NAPA parts store and buy a Haynes Manual for the vehicle. It will tell you all of the torque specs you need and the tightening pattern.

You more than likely have a valve cover gasket leaking. You can try tightening the bolts holding the valve cover in place to 20 lb/ft of torque, (do not over-tighten) and see if that stops the leak. If not, you will have to replace the gasket.
