It is time for an oil change but it isn't overdue. Small leakage from worn valve cover gasket. Dip stick reads full. Oil on stick is warm to the touch. At first the oil light would come on only when car was stopped. Then it stopped doing that. Later the check engine light came on and stayed on. Now once driven a few miles the oil light comes on as I am driving. I'm not hearing engine noises and no there's no clearly apparent loss of power. The gasket has been the same one for the past two years and the oil pressure light never came on.
I'm hoping it's the oil sensor light. I'm waiting for the part now. Could it be it be the valve cover gasket or something worse causing this or am I on the right track? Thanks for your help!
