I have oil around the spark plug closest to the passenger compartment and is dripping on the garage floor. I can't see exactly where it is coming from? Could it be the valve cover gasket and is it hard to replace? I have done the plugs, brakes etc.. I am pretty handy but just want to make sure there isn't anything I should know?
THANKS

Look in the back of the engine. You'll probably see the leak there.

One other possibility: if the oil is leaking from the engine onto to the front differential and then dripping down it might be the oil filter mount or the filter is loose. Also, if you recently changed the oil you'll get some drips in that area unless you clean it up.

But if the valve cover is leaking you'll find instructions for changing it here:
