I'd suggest an RTV called "right stuff".. really is what it is. We use it at the shop. It's made for that kind of application in heat, oil, mild pressures, etc. You've gotta do it with the surfaces free oil ANY oil though. anyway, I'd inspect the valve cover gasket and mating surfaces carefully so see if there's prior RTV or warpage, etc like the above's said. Hang in there with your Sportage. Usually , they only have a few minor bugs normally these Sportage's really are dependable and low maintenance. I think I've spent maybe $500 under the hood over over the last 3-4 years I've owned it spanning 70k Miles and it started with around 63k miles. I beat the snot out of mine every day and 'her' and I just have a blast . Good luck, hope you get it. And yes, don't forget to check proper PCV operation. Even good seals will leak if the PCV is clogged. The pressure must escape somewhere.
