Oil Leak-Drivers side front
I recently replaced my valve cover gaskets due to an oil leak. It's much better, but it still leaks a little. I can't tell exactly where, but it is the drivers side front somewhere. Oil is built up on the splash shield and over night there is a small spot in the driveway. Anyone have any idea what I might want to check out first? Thanks.

If you replaced the gaskets but didn't clean the crankcase breather you'll continue to have a leak.
