Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is. Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from. It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully. You can do all this in the driveway. You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.

remove all the components in the way of the valve cover. Then remove the valve cover and replace the gasket and reassemble.
usually about a 3 to 4 hour job.

The first step is to remove all the parts that are in the way of you being able to remove the valve covers. (Ex.: air intake, loose wires etc.) Then you will need to remove your valve covers (using basic tools) and be very careful to not let anything get on your lifters, which your valve covers protect. Once you have the valve covers off compare the new gaskets to make sure they are the right size. Then remove the old gasket and replace with the new one using a high temp gasket sealant (available at any auto parts store) to attach the gasket to the valve covers. Then tighten down snug and check for leaks after replaced.
