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.

I have oil dripping. Where could that be coming from?


Is it oil or transmission fluid? The color will tell you, transmission will be red. Best bet is to clean the engine and then watch closely to see where the oil is coming from. Possible locations include Valve cover, bad oil filter seal, leaking heads, bad main seal.

2000 ford focus oil leak drip off rear top of oil pan. oil pan gasket or valve cover gasket?


Sounds like the valve cover gasket, clean off all the oil on the engine with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner and then drive it and recheck for the leak, that way you can pin it down for sure.
