Oil leaks can come from many places and end up on the ground. I would clean off your engine and then run it and observe from the top down to pin point the source of the leak. That is how I do it in a shop. Often times I steam clean the engine and then drive it back from the cleaning area to the shop and by the time I have it up in the air on a lift, the source is much easier to find. I have seen Techs in Shops replace a ton of parts while they guess where the oil is coming from, you do not want to go there.
