Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Leaking only when engine running.....Streaming oil from below valve cover.
However I can't tell from any angle where it begins. Exhaust pipe is hard to
get around to try to dx the origin. I cant afford mechanic. Need help.

hate to suggest this...but a can of "foamy engine brite" spray, then covering the distributor and high voltage components with plastic bags and duct tape use the engine brite and hose it off~ let it dry, remove the plastic bags that protected the coil, etc. and give it a chance to show itself~ then replace the valve cover gasket...you may try just snuggin' the vc bolts a scoach~...do not overtighten...replace the gasket instead~
