good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist

the bolts are not exposed to oil passages. the oil leaks are generally from where the front and rear of the manifold meet the block. removing and replacing the gasket is the correct way to repair this leak. it is tight but just take your time. you will need a intake manifold set with valve cover gaskets.
