Lexus GS300 oil leak

Scotty,

 

I bought a 2000 Lexus GS300 with only 135,000 miles on it about six months ago. Now I'm almost at 140k. The car seems to have a slow oil leak coming from the valve gasket cover. Is this something I should try and get fixed or would I be better off just keeping the oil topped off? Thanks!

It's up to you. You didn't mention how much it leaks but if you have to top it off, if finally drips on the exhaust and cause smoke. If you don't mind the smoke and burn smell, you can top off the oil.

Fix it correctly with a new valve cover gasket.
