Hello, There are a couple of items that can leak oil. The oil filter housing can if it isn't fully seated. There are a couple of sensors that can leak as well if the o rings crack. I would get a can of brake clean and spray off all of the oil on top of the engine where you see it at. Then start the engine up and get to operating temp and look for fresh oil. It sounds like the cooler gaskets are leaking. Cleaning off the area and looking for fresh oil is the easiest thing to do. If you have further questions please let me know. Please remember to rate my answer so I receive credit for assisting you.
