If it is coming from up top it is in all probability the valve cover-check to be sure your PCV valve is not plugged and the crankcase is properly vented as excessive crankcase pressures will cause oil leaks from what would normally be good gaskets.

Tip

I think my head gasket is blown


If you have a blown head gasket a couple things will happen. You may be leaking coolant into the cylinder or into the oil passages.
Coolant leaking into the cylinder will produce a constant white smoke (steam actually) from the exhaust pipe. White smoke can be normal as condensation occurs with weather and the chemical reaction of the catalytic converter, but if you have a significant amount of constant white smoke followed by loss of coolant/water than you probably have a blown head gasket.
Coolant leaking into the oil passages will produce a chocolate milk color on the oil dipstick. If oil is brand new you may not be able to see this, but you will be able to see that the oil level on the dipstick is very high. You may also see oil (dark spots in the coolant) in the radiator/expansion tank.
Here are your options:
Replace the head gasket, BE SURE TO HAVE THE HEAD RESURFACED. May cost between $500 - $1500 USD for parts and labor.
Utilize a block sealer (available at any auto parts store) CAUTION these typically do not work but it may be worth a shot on small leak, but these normally require removing the thermostat and following special instructions to work as the manufactures claim - but they are very inexpensive compared to having the head gasket replaced.

Overheating a lot of new parts ,waterpump,themostat, heater hoses,fresh antifreeze, and every other day i have to put a gal or more in dur to it low , what is going on?


Unfortunately, with all you have done, it appears you may have a blown head gasket or cracked head if you cannot locate any other place that the water is leaking from. First of all I would check the car for leaks after you have been driving it and turned it off. The pressure builds up in the system right after the car is turned off and you may see leaks then that you never see. If you still dont see where the water is leaking from by doing this, then pull the oil dipstick up out of the tube and check your oil. If there is a white milky substance on the oil then there is water getting into you oil which indicates a bad head gasket or cracked head. If you still dont find water in your oil by doing that then your water/coolant is probably escaping through your exhaust by water vapor. Check your exhaust while the car is running (after it has warmed up) and see if there is any water vapor coming out. Put your hand in front of the exhaust and you should feel the moistness if there is water vapor, but you should see it as well. If so, again, it is a head gasket or a cracked head. Make sure you look for all leaks in hoses, etc, (including inside passenger floorboard from heater core leaking) before you totally conclude that this is the head gasket or a cracked head. If you cannot locate any other source for the leaks then the only thing left is the head gasket or head.

I have a 02 dodge stratus and just had the valve cover gaskets replaced and at my oil change they said they see oil leak further back on motor- maybe oil sending unit or headgasket? any ideas on what I...


usually with oil leaks, you start at the top and work down. If you know the valve covers are leaking, you start there, and see what happens. They may not have been able to clean all the old oil off if this was your first oil change after the service. If it is a 2.4l, you do most likely have a leaking head gasket as they are prone to do that about every 60-70K.
