Re: Topside Oil Leak
Wipe with your finger underneath the valve cover to see if it is oily.
If oily, it has a leak. If finger is dry, no leak.
Remove the bellhousing inspection cover and check front side of flywheel.
If wet, could be a leaky rear main seal or leaky oil pan gasket.
Another feat would be to set parking brake, chock wheels, place the front tires on ramps, either layers of 2X10 boards or steel ramps, run engine and crawl underneath and do a visual inspection to see where oil is coming from. Can't find any, shut car off, leave car set overnight, visualize puddle location under car, crawl underneath and look directly above. Oil could travel from front of engine to rear due to airflow while vehicle is traveling.
Check all places. Report back.
