I have a huge coolant leak. leaks all over the motor front and back. oil too. i have the intake off and the gasket is broke on the passenger side all the way to the back. looks like a coolant jacket? would oil leak from that to? the gasket looks bad in the back but not totally broke. also i lost some valve cover bolts. can i buy them at an auto parts store? or do i have to go to Ford? i spent 201 dollars at Ford on gaskets today and i want the bolts as cheap as possible. Thank you for your help

You can get the replacement bolts from the parts store.
