smokey oily smell

Hi I've got smoke coming from the front of my impreza, smells oily which is making me think its gear box oil as I have an oil leak from the box. I do have a replacement box to fit, but I'm just wondering if there is anyway I might be able to confirm this is definatly where this clear steam/smoke is coming from. Seems to be coming up either side of rocker covers towards the front. Otherwise cld it be the rocker gaskets? Regards Gareth

Re: smokey oily smell

Rocker cover gaskets are prone to leaking
