Default Oil Leak

My 1999 95 v6 seams to leak oil from the place where u add oil. It looks like it is leaking from where the plastic piece meets the valve cover. When pressure builds the oil seams to be forced out where the plastic meets the metal. Has anyone else had this problem or anyone know a fix for this problem?

what is your oil level like? seems like it might be overfilled. If not, there should be an o-ring in that spot that might need to be replaced.

My oil level is a little below normal. How do you remove that plastic piece from the valve cover and where can i get an o-ring for it.
