My 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP is leaking oil and I can't tell where it is coming from the valve cover or the intake manifold. Any advice? It drips on the exhaust manifold and smells. It also gets on the belt and slings oil around. Anyone have a similar situation?

Remove valve cover gaskets and inspect them for tears/rips.

While possible the intake is leaking, I would think you would have leaking coolant also.

If all else fails, clean engine and put dye into oil, inspect under blacklight to isolate leak.

Check supercharger oil supply for leaks also.

Get fixed ASAP, an oil leak on exhaust can cause an oil fire and that would be a big mess.
