    Valve cover gaskets (has two), any of the oil seals within the timing cover (front crank seal, camshaft seals) or the rear main seal/ torque converter seal, oil pressure switch or oil filter itself. You may have to have the engine washed first to clean off old oil or even add florescent dye into the oil to pin point the exact source of the leak.
