So, after replacing the pcv valve and gromit, it does not appear to be leaking anywhere from replacement valve cover.

But it looks like I found a place that I am getting oil from. I have attached photo.

It appears to be building up in the cutout that I have circled in photograph.

After a couple of start, warmup, offs, I can see oil building up here with nowhere to go. And it is very slow, if at all, to drain anywhere.

Any ideas what I could be running into?

Thanks everyone!

As I have continued to look for answers, I have found that the “cutout” I’m talking about in photo above is designed for heat dissipation. Passenger side had no noticeable oil in it, but drivers side seems to have oil sitting in it.

Am I likely finding oil in there just from the excess that was blowing out of my pcv valve grommet?

As I ran the motor yesterday, I was unable to find any other leaking areas, (after replacing valve/grommet).

Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
