Hi there. It is possible for oil to soak into electrical components of an alternator and cause it to fail prematurely. If the oil leak still exists after completing the recent valve cover gasket changed, it’s possible that the source is an oil line with a faulty connection, front or rear crankshaft seal or even a power steering fluid or other lubricant leak. It is probably best to have a professional mechanic complete a car is leaking fluid inspection, to isolate the source of the leak and recommend the right repairs.
