Oil leak..... need help diagnosing

Below is a picture of the passenger side 4.7 motor in my 09 GC. Just under the exhaust manifold. The oil leak has started with in the last 48 hours. Over night leaves about a quarter size drop on the ground. No previous oil spots in my garage until yesterday morning. I first thought it was from the rear main at the bottom where the motor meets the trans. But that seem to be where the drip accumaltes, then falls to the ground.

Your thoughts and help are much appreciated.

Re: Oil leak..... need help diagnosing

Take a look up higher at the back corner of the valve cover gasket, that would be my best guess, we just don't have head gasket leaks on 3.7 and 4.7's ever.
