Default valve covers.

Changing spark plugs & noticed a bit of oil leak from rear vc. Is it a MUST to replace the vc, or can I just replace the gasket?

Unless the cover itself is cracked(they're plastic if I recall correctly), you can just replace the seal. I saw a how to video where the person said they don't sell the seal separately, but I found that not to be true, even for oem. I have a set waiting to go on myself.

It was locally, either Autozone or Advance Auto, around $15 I believe. The OEMs minus shipping are about the same price from Courtesy Nissan.
