This isn't the first vehicle I have had to do engine repairs on just my first solo. Need some help!!!

I just got it back on the road after getting tags and registration changed over to Oregon after my move when maybe a month later my 1995 GMC Jimmy 4.3L Vortex engine blew oil all over my front and underside of engine. I had just replaced the water pump and a top hose for the anti-freeze. Now this.

Where do I start looking for the problem and where do I start repairs?

    Clean oil off and check to see if front crank seal is leaking. Also timing cover gasket. Good place to start then get back to us for more tips.
