Lately I've noticed that when I come to a stop and the Heater is on we get a burning oil smell. When I was replacing the spark plugs I did see that the valve cover seals were in horrible condition and there was some oil on the top of the passenger side of the engine. I'm hoping that the solution will be as easy as replacing the valve cover seals.

Any thoughts on the smell other than What I've already noticed?

DEGREASE your Engine Bay and then wait a day or two.
With a Super Clean Engine; you will easily see where the Leak is
eminating from.

I can understand the smell. Oil dripping onto Headers or Hot Engine will
cause Smoking and/or Burning Oil smell.

Replacing a Valve Cover Gasket is a walk in the park.

I'll do one in a month or two and post pictures online.
