Default Where is it leaking oil?

I have a Honda Del Sol that leaks oil ONLY when going down a steep hill.It looks like the valve cover gasket.Could it be or could it be the cam seal..?I know it leaks only down hill cause we have 2 roads here leading to the place I work.1 has alot of steep hills the other has none.When Im traveling the hilly road I can spell the oil when going down hill and it comes from the Drivers side front corner of the valve cover.Anyways I guess no one had this experience yet so Im just gona figure when Im going down hill all the oil in the valve cover goes forward and leaks out that 1 corner.I am guessing the gasket is bad..

so how you know it only leak when going down a hill .... sorry but if you have a leak it leaks always.... valve covers most common so check the screws if they loose tighten just a little bit dont over tighten... valve cover gasket are cheap and sometime easy to do

I know cam seals are notorious on hondas. If you cant find the leak and you suspected one or the other...replace them both. inexpensive parts. cheap insurence.
