does anyone know the bolt size that hold the engine cover onto the valve cover? The rear nuts are fine, except my two front bolts were missing ever since i bought the car...

I went to the local hardware store and got 2 M6(6mm) x 10mm machine screws and 2 chrome caps with the same size thread and 4 washers.

If you're talking about the "front" of the engine which is towards the rear of the car the original fasteners are some kind of plastic thingy. I don't know how they work; I've never taken off the cover.

The plastic thingies usually break when removed.The holes are threaded though.

I have had the plastic cover off the cam cover a couple of times. I just lost one of the plastic push button fasteners off the rear. I will be replacing them with 6mm x 1.0 studs and acorn nuts like the forward side. Glad I lost one because I don't like them to begin with.
