2001 V6 oil leak
My passenger noticed a burnt oil smell, checked under the hood and I can see smoking behind the passenger side valve cover. The valve cover gasket itself seems to be leaking a little, but the smoke seemed to be coming from deeper down the engine.
My initial worry is rear main seal, but Im wondering if any oil coming from there would even reach the exhaust?
Is a leaking cover gasket common? Truck only has 60K miles or so.
