loose bolts everywhere ea81...

now on my new to me 89' ea81 hatch.. it was the same way.. i figured this out while changing the oil and noticing the puddles it was leaving everywhere, and the smoke/smell at stoplights..
every bolt on the oil pan was so loose i had to turn it 2 times with my fingers before it was snug.. i tightened these..
both valve cover bolts were the same way.. so i tightened them too..
are all ea81's this way? am i going to be tightening bolts everytime i crawl under it to change the oil? or is there something i don't know about? lol

the only thing i can physically see with wet oil on it now is the oil pump.. my guess is the gaskets are gone and its just leaky..
but the parts stores here won't sell just a gasket (they don't even have a listing for it) they wanna sell me the hole friggin pump for like $90.. i'm going online shoippin for this one when it warms up..
glad i'm not totally missing some part of a puzzle with this, lol..
