Oil leak can be attributed to several factors.
1. Gasket failure.
2. Uncontrolled Crank case pressure Failure.
Tighten both the valve cover and oil pan bolts.
Replace the Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valve and vacuum line.,
This is a valve causes a negative vacuum on the engine while its running, As to say if it had a leak in a valve cover it should not be leaking while its running, only when the engine it turned off.
Hope this tip guides you in the correct direction to solve this problem.

All you have to do is get under the car with a 1/2" drive ratchet, 3" extension, an extension swivel, and the socket for the bolts on the oil pan. Go through all the bolts and tighten them all up. You will be surprised at how loose some of them are.

Changing the oil pan gasket is quite the job. You will have to take the motor mount bolts all out and jack the motor up about 8 inches. Then you will have to take the bolts out of the oil pan. You will need to take the oil pan all the way out and clean the old gasket off off of the oil pan. Then apply some gasket sealant on the oil pan. You will have to watch closely that the gasket does not fall down in the pan once you go to put the oil pan back in place to install it.
