I'm not sure if its coming from the valve cover or the head gasket. I've wiped around the area and will drive it around a bit more and see if I can track it.

What I'm wondering is, is I thought that if it was a headgasket, there would be anti-freeze in the oil and oil in the anti-freeze but I don't see any signs of that. Or is it possible to have a leak from the headgasket (between the head and the block) without having the oil and anti-freeze mixing around?

On the last picture, one of the the bolts that goes into the block from the front of the car is missing. You can't see it in the picture, because it is hidden behind a belt, but could that potentially cause a small leak between the block and the head?

To me it seems to be coming from the headgasket but the oil and antifreeze aren't mixing and it has never overheated so I'm a bit stumped.
