Hey guy's have problem with my car. It has an oil on the right side of the motor, It's 95 thunderbird with a 4.6, with around 160,000 on the motor. the only thing I can see is some oil on the corner of the head when I'm under the car looking up. It kind of a big leak, due to when I'm at a light it look's like the car is on fire. Could it be the head gasket leaking or the valve cover??? need some help with this.

Probably the oil filter adapter gasket.

I know where the oil filter adapter is, and a whole lot of other stuff too.

Left or right depends which way you're looking at it. You didn't specify so I took a guess. That's why I always specify passenger or driver side - impossible to mix that up.

Since you say it's on the passenger side of the motor, most likely it's a valve cover gasket.

Update head gasket is the problem. So I wasted time doing the valve cover gasket. Well time to pull the motor or sell the car.
