I suggest cleaning the engine to help you isolate the leak location. Keep in mind that oil tends to flow down and back, so follow the trail up and forward to find the likely location of the leak.

The oil pans on my three 90-93 Accords have been notorious leakers, relatively easy to replace.

Another notorious leaker is the oil pressure switch which is mounted on the back of the block above the oil filter.

If it is primarily on the passenger side, it might be the 'rear' seal on the engine behind the flywheel. To replace this seal, the transmission and flywheel have to be removed. The seal can be purchased already installed in a plate which bolts to the right (passenger side) of the block. A Haynes manual has sufficient instructions for performing this work.

Oil leak in my 92 jeep cherokee

The most likely place for an engine to start leaking oil (when it's coming from the top and not the bottom) is around the valve covers -- the gasket goes bad. Next most likely is camshaft seals.

Sometimes just tightening the valve cover botls will stop it or at least reduce it.

Slight oil leak appears to be coming from oil sensor

Replace the Sensor. You should not need to Change the Oil unless it needs it. Just tighten Finger Tight and 1/2 Turn with Wrench too assure no Leaks occur.

92 honda accord engine problem

You may have a vacuum leak at the intake. Spray some WD-40 along the intake while it's running. If the car's idle changes you have a vacuum leak there. Replace the intake gasket. Your IAC valve (Idle Air Control valve) could be acting up as well.
