valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.
rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn
if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.

have you called the local repair shops for prices? It's really hard for us to give you a price because we don't know where you live of what the repair shops in your area charge for parts and services. Sorry
However, I'd have a 1k in my pocket.

either the cam seals are leaking or the valve cover gasket is leaking into the timing cover. maybe even head gasket...
but in most of the cases like oil leaking from behind the timing cover the camshaft seal is the faulty .and replacing the camshaft solves the problem.
no its not a costly part to be replaced.
you can get it from a local car repair tech or from
www.autozone.com service center.they also deal in parts.
This will help. Thanks please keep
updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
