your valves will collide with your crank, causing a massive explosion in your subframe chamber, which could damage your exhaust bearing

j/k


I have no clue, hope somebody will help...I would just fix it.

Easy to fix. Most likely you can just get a new gasket where the valve bolts to the head.

No damage except the oily stain on your driveway. Unless of course you let the engine run completely out of oil...
