    Hi, new to this forum. I have a small oil leak somewhere on the rear/right of my engine which is dripping onto the exhaust. Possible rocker cover gasket, does this sound about right? Is it a common fault? Is it easy to fix? :(

    Either a rocker gasket issue, or a cam chain tensioner (most likely).

    Rocker gasket easier and cheaper to replace, cam tensioner less so, but not a bad job to undertake.

    The cam chain tensioner only applies if it's a 30V engine.
