My father is claiming that it is a valve cover gasket leak? on 2002 Saab 9-5

If the valve cover was indeed leaking, wouldn't it be external? Again thank you for your assistance on this matter.

valve cover gaskets normally leak externally, ck again it may just look like a v/c gasket but it could be eng blowby caused by malfunctioning pcv system
