Default 2002. 1.8T A4 Valve Cover Gasket???

So while doing some little trouble shooting, car has a little hesitation low gears around 2-3k rpm, so I went for the spark plugs because the coils were replaced recently, fixed my problem, but noticed that there is a little oil leaking around the valve cover gasket, to the point I found a little in the #4 coil pack, now, to the question, how difficult is it for DIY project?? The only mechanical experience I have is just that, replacing coil packs and spark plugs????

I doubt it's the head gasket that's leaking, but you might want to think about doing the valve cover gasket and spark plug well o-rings that come with a VC gasket kit.

There is lots of info on the forums and it would help you if you had Bentley manual.
FYI be real careful and if you are not comfortable approaching this job, than don't.
