valve cover?! wtf

hey whats up! so i decided to change out my engine valve cover for an aftermarket one, as i was putting that one on i noticed it had a crack on it so i went ahead and put the old one back on. when i was done i could hear a weird clicking noise coming from under the valve cover. i think i might have knocked some shit around. and to top it off the check engine light is on. any help on the subject would be awesome. thanks

My guess is something got in there. Did you degrease the engine before opening it?
