Seems like everytime I look under my car I have a damn spot of oil coming from someplace new. The first leak was about a month ago, the oil drain plug got stripped during an oil change at the shop. Had to drill the old on out and replace it.
Then a couple weeks ago I notice some oil spatter on the firewall, get to looking and see the the corner of my valve cover was leaking. So today I took off the valve cover, replaced the gasket and RTVed the hell out of it.
Pull the car out of the garage and see another spot of oil on the ground!! :wah?!: This time it's about the size of a silver dollar. Jack the car up and get to looking and see oil around the drain plug again. Get up in there closer and see that the oil is running down the side of the oil pan from somewhere above. :crying:

Guess what I get to do this weekend :crying:

It might just be some that was still finding its way to the ground. Did you bolt the valve cover in the right sequence...

Ofcourse ;) The Cover is definately not leaking anymore....no oil anywhere around it since I cleaned it off. The cover was leaking on the intake side, this leak is on the drive belt side
