I have this oil leak. My car has 90k and it smells bad at times and leaves a puddle at times.
I replaced valve cover gasket but im not sure it may need to be tightened. I had a broke bolt in the valve cover that was dumping oil into the spark plug holes. I fixed that and that leaking spot is fixed completely

On a cold engine, take some bathroom scrubbing bubbles, spray that all over the area around the leak, let it sit for 10 minutes, rinse it off with some cool water, and then run the engine to see where it's actually coming from. The torque on those bolts is 71in-lbs. I snapped one of the new ones on mine, torquing them to 6ft-lbs (72in-lbs). Replaced it with one of the ones from the original cover that I was replacing.
