Should I worry?

About a week and a 1/2 ago, I changed my lift bolts. Everything was fine untill today. I was driving with the A/C on then I started to smell oil. So, I pulled over and pop the Hood, then I saw that I forgot to tighten the two nuts with the gasket (pic below)and oil was leaking out of it. How could I be so stupid. I checked the oil and it was down by a half and to make matters worse my engine coolant was low. So the first thing I did was tighten the nut and refilled the engine fluids. Should I worry that something else might go wrong because I was driving like this for "a week and 1/2"? Oh yeah, and the same day I changed my bolts was racing. confused

It runs fine. A little bit of smoke comes out though but I think thats the leaking oil heating up.

yeah you should be fine. If there was damage the car would run rough. Just be careful and keep an eye on it. No sense worrying that doesn't help smile
