97 OIL LEAK

1997 Saturn SC2

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Saturn SC2 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

I have a 97 saturn SC2 with 90,000 miles that recently developed a severe oil leak. I can't pin down where it is coming from yet even though it is a major leak. The top of the valve cover has a lot of oil sitting in it and when I pull the spark plug wires, the recesses down into where the plug is are full of oil. The engine sounds fine. Where could the oil on top of the valve cover and into the spark plug chamber be coming from?

That's a easy one ur valve cover gasket there is a gasket around each plug hole there leaking replace the gasket. When u do make sure that u put a bead of silcone across where the front cover meets the head before u put the valve cover back on or u will have another leak there. Let me know how it goes.
