I had a slow oil leak and couldn't ever figure out where it was until I changed my spark plugs. That is when I saw that some oil was getting in around one of the spark plugs. After some time I decided to go ahead and have the valve cover gasket replaced hoping to get all the oil leakage stopped. After that was done I did an oil change, filter and oil. After that was done I discovered I had an ever bigger oil leakage issue. Car is not smoking best I can tell. I checked all the spark plugs again, and sure enough pretty much every one of the spark plugs had oil around them, some worse than others. Told my mechanic, he was puzzled to and he told me to check the PCV valve. I did, it was a little dirty but not as bad as I would have expected. I cleaned that, made sure it worked properly and put it back in. So now I am wondering what is causing my car to leak about a quart of oil about every 700 miles. Just thought someone on here might give me a better idea as to what might be causing this too happen.
have the same problem?
