If the AMC Eagle you are planning to purchase or already own leaks motor oil and oil is burning off the engine after it warms up then in most liklihood you have a leaking valve cover gasket. This is especially true if you have a 258 with a "plastic" valve cover. For owners of 1980, 87 and 88 258 Eagles and 4 cylinder Eagles you just need to replace the gasket. Not so easy for owners of 1981 - 1986 258 owners. You will need to replace the valve cover too. Information on how to do this can be found here: How To Upgrade Your Valve Cover
