Replace valve cover gaskets, upper timing case gaskets, PCV valve, PCV vent tube
Oil leak drips very little so evaporates on manifold , but gives a smell when idle. Leave spots when car not used a few days
Have to bit bull it and repair before oil ignites and smell gets back when at idle from burning off even though very small leak it seems, as oil level doe not really drop , crazy should not happen at this low milage!!
