What causes oil leak from valve cover gasket and to air filter

My car has 183345 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The oil leak from your valve cover is generally caused by a failing valve cover gasket that is not properly sealing or a valve cover that is not properly torqued down. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to replace your valve cover gasket and correct the oil leak.
