SOURCE: oil leaking
You need to clean the engine and then run the vehicle while watching the area. The most common failure is the oil sending unit located near the oil filter. I have also seen a leak develop between the oil pump housing, which is mounted directly behind the hamonic balencer and the engine block.

Whine usually occurs on tight turns maximising pump output and/or pump may be worn and needs replacement. Leakage can be from pump reservor,connection, or power rack and pinion steering assy. Spray off any area with a sign of fluid with a brake clean or carb. cleaner and look for signs of leakage.

Testimonial: "Thank You!"
If it just started leaking bring it back to the same person that did an oil sevice and complain ever since.
Maybe you have a loose oil filter.
I'm not saying your mechanic is dishonest but alot of shops right now are suffering because of the recession
