See image below, oil is collecting in the little nooks & crannies. Can't tell if it is leaking from the oil cap gasket or the tube I presume is part of the PCV. There is no oil in the spark plug holes or around the valve cover, so its not the gasket... How do I fix what ever it is?

Two things....the first is, yea, the above poster is spot on. The oil cap gasket should be replaced like every other oil change. However, you want to make sure that the oil is not coming out because you got positive pressure....so, do the PCV test to make sure all is well. After that, buy this gasket:

And DON'T THROW IT OUT!

LOL, hate to say it but I laughed when I seen that pic.

I'm with RMorse, check the PCV. When ever you have a issue, always ask, why did that happen to get to the root of the cause. Oh, I'm bleeding, I better put a bandaid on it. You might want to get that steel spring fixed in your matress so you stop getting poked.

If you don't know how to tes your PCV please do ask. There should be a vacuum on that cap not pressure.
