Looking from front. On passengers side in rear of motor it is dripping down. I have checked the valve cover gasket no leaks from there. I have a 12 ex 1.8l . Does the newer 1.8l have a vetch solenoid?
Hope to hear from you all soo.

Without pictures this is going to be impossible to say.
Best way to find a leak it to totally clean the area and then inspect for fresh oil. Or add uv die and inspect with a blacklight.

Not really sure I followed ala around the valve cover cant see it leaking from there. I cleaned up it was all oily in that area and dripping down. I took picture after I cleaned. I have 191k on car and have never done valve cover. So I bought new gaskets with spark plug holes and honda bond. Just to do in case.

sure it's a leak? like is there a spot on the garage/driveway that you can see? could have been just residue oil from filter changes, oil fills, etc.
