    If you left a 2018 car in for service oil and airfilter and spark plugs and airfilter car was perfect before it went in and within a week was leaking oil turns out to be rocker cover seal Would you think this was related to service ?

    If the rocker cover was removed they’d have to replace the gasket with a fresh one but I’m not sure they’d be taking the rocker cover off as part of a normal service.

    Check the receipt for a parts list & see if a rocker cover gasket is listed, if they charged you for the part you could then argue it wasn’t fitted (or refitted) correctly.

    Moved to a forum that's actually related to the topic instead.

    What car is it? Don't think there is many cars you'd have to take the rocker cover off to change oil/air/sparkies.

    Probably just a coincidence.

    Gasket leak or oil spill during service? Get a can of brake cleaner, clean it off & see is it still leaking next week.

    Or normally what occurs that the customer 'inspects' the engine after the service and first notices the leak and blames the mechanic
