      Check the valve cover gaskets, cam seals and cam plugs. All three are known to leak.

      cam seals would be in the front of the motor, cam plugs could be a possibility but (drivers side) would land on the manifold and burn off as he drove therefore it would smoke and (passenger side) would also be smoking. I dont think thats it but definitely check all of those they are very common to leak and cause future problems as well as the valve cover gaskets
