Thicker oil? Just kidding, friday of a long week. You can try some plumbers tape. That white stuff you put on the threads. I'm thinking that's where it's coming from. If it's not the threads and is the valve, well replace the valve or put in a plug. You may want to clean all the oil off with brakeclean and dry completely. Then spray some Dr. Scholl's foot powered on it and the leak will show itself.
