Oil leak? 05 Tj

I have notice oil leaking from somewhere on my TJ. There is residue up towards the rear main but also I noticed that it looked like it was coming from the drivers side right by the cats. So I am curios if anyone had experience the same problem and knows the fix.

Thank You

Check your valve cover first. Sometimes the screws work loose and the gasket leaks.

It probably is the valve cover. Clean it all up nice with purple power and try and pin point the leak locations. Replace the valve cover with a felpro brand blue rubber gasket if it is the culprit.
