Hey all,

Losing oil at the back of the motor on the right side, looks like either valve cover or maybe that's part of the PCV system? I'm not super familiar with this motor. I can see where the oil is getting down onto the exhaust near the O2 sensor and it does stink.

What do you all think is the most likely leak source here?

Looking around online, it looks like this is either one of the cam caps or the PCV/Oil Separator cover. I'll fish around there tomorrow and see if I can figure out what's leaking.

Interestingly I am unable to find such a thing as a valve cover gasket for this engine, plenty of sites suggest permatex though. I've seen that before, and am definitely hoping I don't need to pull this cover off and scrape that crud for hours...
