You can use the choke spray for cleaning it, if you do, remove and clean the entire tube from end to end, not just the oraface. However, this part is fairly cheap, around $10 at any automotive store, I suggest replacement.

SOURCE: oil leak
this could be many possibilities. The best way to find out is to raise it up (if not high enough already) and wipe down everything that has oil on it. Once you do this you can sit there for a bit or do something else for a few minutes and come back to it. Use a flashlight to see where the oil may be dripping from and if you can not find it you may have to run the truck for a bit to see.

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

The oil pump is in the the oil pan so you will need a new oil pan gasket and some form a gasket as well to put the pan back on, because you will have to take it off, you will see the oil pump a soon as you take the pan off, it will have a tube connecting to the pick up screen and to the block, remove bolts from the block and remove oil pump. be prepared the primming rod will probably come out too. itll need to go back of course, make sure seated in correctly because the primming rod runs off the cam. make sure the surface area for the oil pump gasket is clean before reinstalling new oil pump same goes for oil pan. after everything back together refill oil. It is best to test the oil pump before starting for your engine. the best way to do this is to remove the distrubuter if it has one if it has electronic ignition it will have a cap where the distributer went remove that and you will see the top end of the primming rod, fit appropriate socket on the primming rod and use a battery gun to spin, look inside oil fill cap and make sure you see oil flow or oil pressure on your gage if equiped, CAREFULL!!!!!! make sure the socket on battery gun has no way of falling off, or you will have to remove oil pan again to retrieve it.
Another way to prime pump is to disable igniton main power like remove the coil wire, or main power wire for electronic igniton so you can turn the motor over with out it starting, once again turn it over until you know you have oil pressure with the gage or through oil fill cap. put ignition back together start the car and once again confirm oil pressure. If every thing looks good your done Good luck
