Just curious if anybody has had the valve cover gasket leak on their 2011? Mine just started the other day, blew oil all over my right boot and I didnt know what the problem was. I know it was a problem on the 2010. Still waiting to hear if it will be warrantied or not.

If you recently removed your rear shock, pulled up your subframe, etc, you may have pinched the breather tube. It will cause the valve cover gasket to blow.
