Can you tell us more?
How many miles on the car?
Which side of the engine area? Drips after you park etc?
Oil ever low? If so how often do you ad oil?
Any visible oil on engine and bay components under hood?
likely areas for oil leaks may include depending on model and make:
Oil pan gasket seal.
Oil pressure sending unit.
Oil filter installed dry or over tightened at your last oil change.
Oil drain plug loose or plug gasket needs replacing.
Valve cover gasket needs replacing.
Crank shaft seals need replacing.
Distributor seals need replacing.
RTV gasket sealer beyond expected life and need replacing for other engine components, inspection plates or covers.

A number plate mounted in the air-splitter will make no difference to your engine intake - if you actually look at the air intake for your engine, you'll notice it opens up just above the left wheel arch - as for air flow through the radiator, the restriction caused by the number plate will be very low compared to other factors such as the radiator design and the aerodynamic design of the flow passage.
Often times, aftermarket air-dams actually have TOO much intake area. As impossible as this seems, the rapid transition from the large intake area to the restriction of the radiator causes a choking effect - a smaller intake negates this effect and can result in SIGNIFICANTLY increased flow and heat dissipation capacity (this really only matters if you're going to give it a really good flogging on a track).
Don't worry about the number plate - mine HAS to mount over the air-dam (1992 with a custom air-dam due to a small disagreement with a large animal about the use of local roads!) and I've never been able to overheat it on even the most demanding hill-climbs
Hope this sets your mind at ease, Sherwin

Testimonial: "Thank you it has put my mine at ease. It looks much better in the air dam. Cheers Steven"
