2001 xj, oil leaks that needed repair are valve cover, rear main seal and oil filter seals.
engine is leaking oil from oil pan it looks like and it sounds like it has the exaust problem
Vehicle recently purchased as "summer project" from a friend, quick assessment found a fair amount of oil seepage around pan gasket and a little on the valve cover gasket as well.
Oil constantly leaking. Went to repair shop they said it was a valve problem. $130 to repair.
