Hi,

I have an oil leak on my 2001 sc430. It is leaking onto the alternator (generator) very expensive to replace. My previous ls400 1991 had a similar leak but was sourced as the power steering pump. However this time it is engine oil. Golden brown in colour, not red, anyone can ID this.

Could be valve cover or camshaft seal leak if it's engine oil. It's hard for anyone to diagnose a leak without seeing the vehicle.
