Second valve cover gasket leak

I have a 2012 jk with about 32000 miles now I've had a head replaced, 2 o2 sensors, throw out bearing, and a valve cover gasket. And after today another valve cover gasket I'm not sure if was same one I will find out today.
Chrysler has extended my warranty after the head and one o2 because of check engine light coming on so many times but after 2nd o2 sensor they never returne my calls it's been about 6 mnts has anyone had similar problem what you guys do?

It could be anything from a slightly warrped head to the tech not letting the silicone dry enough before starting the engine or even a clogged breather system which keeps causing vcg's to leak. I would find a local shop with a good reputation and pay for a diagnostic.

Okay so I just got my jeep back and when I ask which side it was they say "oh it wasn't a valve cover it was your right cylinder head gasket"!!....
Along with...
"Right cam phaser sensor"???
The tech replaced cam phaser sensor seals
What are they?
But this was a total shock due to the fact I thought It was a valve cover.now we are talking about the top half of my engine being taken apart so I'm gonnna have to give chrysler a ring a ding ding

I bought a used 2012 in April with 30654 mi. Check engine light came on in Oct, dealer did something and light went off. Four days later, check engine light on and would not change gears just going down the street. Stopped and started, it changed gears. Back to dealer, now needs cylinder head. Is this nothing to be concerned about?
