You would be surprised!!!

Also you can have oil leaking and not a bad air leak and you can have a bad air leak with no oil leaking!

Cracked valve covers are also another very common issue as well.

Do not discount the valve cover. A valve cover leak will likely not respond to a brake cleaner test very well, however, if you smoke test the crankcase you will find the valve cover leak quickly.
