If I send you a picture of the oil drips on the garage floor can you tell me if this is a valve cover gasket leak or a oil pan gasket leak? Picture of drip attached. Every couple months or so have to add about 1 quart of oil.

It looks like engine oil-could be from the front/rear seals, valve cover, oil filter and oil pan

Thanks. Timing work was done to the car a few months ago and I am wondering if the valve cover gasket and front/rear seals were not done properly. That looks like a reasonable possibility.

Wash engine down and after a short drive inspect for fresh leaks, they should be fairly easy to see on the clean engine.
