Oil Leak on 1991 Chrysler LeBaron

I replaced a slightly leaking Valve cover gasket. This stopped that leakage. Oil appears to be leaking around the oil pan (1qt every 2,000 miles). Besides the oil pan gasket is there a timing belt gasket or other gasket that could be culprit?

You could have a rear main oil seal leak, or many other components possibly. The best thing to do is to have engine oil dye added. Then, after driving, the leaks can be checked with a "black light" to see where the dye is originating from. This is the best way to attack hard to determine leaks. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!
