1997 Honda Accord Question: My car is leaking oil pretty bad. I just need to know what seal it is.

I just replaced both the oil pan and valve cover gasket. No oil is coming from there. Oil is dripping from the back of the engine above the oil filter somewhere but cannot not see well enough to know exact. I know it's not the oil filter. But I was thinking maybe the head gasket? And ideas in this? I don't want to spend money and time on parts when I am unsure... Thank you in advance.

    Oil pressure sending unit sensor it's above your oil filter

    ALSO , other than the pressure sending unit , if there is an oil cooler between filter housing and block , that has an o-ring between it and the block , that can leak rather suddenly and a lot.
