Yukon is leaking oil from it seems the oil filter but its on properly any ideas?

(1996 GMC Yukon)
in Riverside, CA on June 18, 2013
Its gotten pretty dirty under there due to the leak when traveling and i think it might be affecting my starter because it wont start up correctly when turning the key it sounds like its going to start but then makes weird noise and shuts off. I noticed that when i halve turn the key and let it go like if i changed my mind about starting it, the truck instantly turns on with no problems. What puzzles me is how when turning the key all the way like it normally should it stalls i think i'm not sure what the right term is but i believe the oil is maybe affecting it. Sorry for such a long post new to this but i should would appreciate any help or ideas on fixing this its become such a burden.
