This is turning into a $300.00 oil leak
You've got a $40K car that's like ten years old. It requires maintenance. Or get a newer car.
Cover might indeed not be warped. Check the inside to see the reinforcing web. It's pretty substantial.
You won't know what you're dealing with till you pull it off to see if the gasket might be pinched.

Don't be too intimidated by all the problems here. Most VCG jobs go OK and don't leak.
