I have a 1986 Subaru GL with the 1.8l motor (carburated). My car has developed a pretty good oil leak. I have traced it to the front of the motor on the drivers side. I replaced the valve cover gas

Is the leak where the head meets the engine block? If so you are due for new head gaskets.

Maybe the front crank seal but you will have to locate the leak before you can fix it.
