Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.First thing you need to do is checking the levels ,engine oil , coolant and power steering fluid, see if any of them is low.The valve cover gaskets on this vehicle are common to leak oil ,take a look at the top of the cylinder head on driver side ,towards the front of the vehicle ,if there is any wet spots from oil...replace the valve cover gasket.Also ,take a look at the engine under cover for wet spots ,this can help figuring out where the leak is. Good luck.let me know.Thank you very much.
