Question V-6 3.0 Heads

I have a 1999 ford ranger that has a oil leak on the heads. The leak began after i replaced the head gaskets due to a hole in the gasket. It still wont stop leaking oil. What do i do? I need help. Putting oil in it twice a every week is costly. Please help.

the valve seals probably sprung a leak, you can do this yourself, autozone has tools to do this, but i would suggest bring the head to a machine shop and have it service

Well i took the heads and had them machined when i replaced the gaskets. Do I need to have them done again? Maybe replace the head gaskets again as well??

Not sure on the head but I would replace the gasket for sure.

Always spend the cash and replace the bolts.
