Oil Leak Valve Cover Help

Hey guys i think my valve cover or spark plug gasket or something in that area is leaking oil. there isnt any under the car, but the right side valve cover is leaking by the spark plugs the other side is dry. I smell oil burning coming threw the vents if i punch on the engine or come off the highway. No lost in power car runs fine no check engine light nothing all help will be appreciated!!!

Are the spark plug holes filling up, or oil leaking from the outer edges of the valve cover? if it is leaking into the spark plug holes you will need a new valve cover as those o-rings cant be replaced. if it is the outer edge of the valve cover you can just get a new valve cover gasket.

I can't really tell the spark plug packs are not sweating but all the way to it is. So I don't know if its slowly coming out and spilling to the edge of the cover or if the edge of the cover. What's the worst that can be wrong? If it was on the bottom I would be really mad

I don't know i put like 20k on it with the oil leaking a little nothing major and i never had to add anything but it does need to be replaced that i know for sure. i have read the Covers its elfs aren't great and tend to crack over time stupid design.

Here is a pic, its the whole side like that and no it's not leaking from the oil dip stick.

I'm trying to find out if a Maxima or Altima valvecover would fit on the G. Since they're running the same VQ35DE.

I'll let you know when I get an answer. The reason is, a Maxima valve cover on ebay is $40. A g35 cover is $200. Looking at the picture, it looks slightly different.
