Have you narrowed it down to what it is? Engine? Battery? Depending on how old your car is, it may have given up.

Get a can of Gunk and clean the engine according to the directions there (please do read them), with attention to the area around where the oil leak is. Once you get the motor squeaky clean, you will be able to trace back to where the oil is coming from. It may be running down the underside of a hose so you will need to look carefully. You can do all this in the driveway. You will probably have to let the engine get to operating temp before it will start leaking.

the hoses from the transmission to the gadiatro is leaking. The timing cover might be leaking but acording to what I found from www.autozone.com the waterpump is not behing the timing cover. the hose coming off of the waterpump is leaking. If this helps this is how you remover the waterpump.

no such thing as a valve cover valve. you have a leakey valve cover and you replace the gasket, if you do one do both they come in a kit. also to do that job you have to do the intake gasket and plenum gasket as well. about $150.00 in parts maybe 5 hours labor

Testimonial: "Thanks I will try that and see what happens"
The ticking noise that you are hearing is a valve lifter which may have a lubricating problem.
The only way to be sure is to check the valve clearance and the one valve which is out of the clearance value will be the one which is making the ticking sound.
In most case's you need to remove the valve lifter and dismantle then clean it and relube it with a vavle lifter lube then refit and adjust the clearance.
Let me know if you need more information.
