I have a 2001 sport with 157000 km on it and I'm getting an burning oil smell after driving a while. There is a bit of oil leaking from the valve covers but doesn't seem like that tiny bit would constantly drip onto manifold. Just wondering it it could be anything easy that might leak ...hoses pcv valve ect.

Can I tighten valve covers a bit or will that make leak worse?
