Okay. Thats a statement. Whats your question? If you want to know where its leaking, look a little harder. Is it by the valve cover? Is it by the oil filter?

valve cover gasket is leaking or the rear main seal is leaking.it will be one of the two.

Well check the VC first. Clean up the area back there with some carb clean and see if its leaking.

most likely an warped valve cover - try to find one!!!!!!
