Room Leaking from chimney somewhere help please


I have leak coming down into my basement and I believe it has something to do with either the chimney chase cover or the area area where the chimney meets the house. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First thing I see is the cap was not made big enough.
Looks like water can get in under the J moulding and outside corner.
Really need to get up on the roof to look at the whole cap and flashing set up.

Looks like Joe nailed it. Probably not wrapped with WRB either.

Water Resistent Barrier. Since chimneys are often not considered a part of the building envelope, I often see the plywood is the only thing behind the siding. No wrap at all.
