Leak somewhere

Previous owner said valve covers were leaking but i see no sign of that . My oil level has been full for the past 2500 miles. But there's wet spots underneath the car and by the master cylinder. Here's some photos .

I'd clean that engine compartment first so that you can tell exactly where the leaks are and how bad they are.
But yes, if most of that is spraying back from the pump, it will probably need to be replaced in the future.

It was 10x worse then what it was when I got it. Cleaned it because he said valve covers were leaking and I was going to get that fix but I've yet to see any oil lost or any oil spots around them. And cleaned it because I can't stand being that dirty. Just a little dirty is fine.


Before and After shot.

Before and after.
The before is a different car because I didn't take any before pictures of my first Bullitt but thats what it looked like when I got it.
The "Before" car will get the same treatment except with the engine removed.
The only reason mine is so clean is, it gathers a crowd at autocrosses and I need to have my hood open for the safety inspections.
I used to not care until I started autocrossing.
