Clean the area really well and run engine until you can narrow down where leak is coming from might be lucky and just be a rocker cover gasket

Water was found leaking from my oil pan and car is overheating. I have a 95 Mazda MX3

Is it leaking FROM the oil pan, or dripping OFF the oil pan?

If its dripping OFF the oil pan, that leads me to beleive you have a coolant leak somewhere. Check the coolant level. Check for leaks.

Check your oil, if the oil is milky/coffee colored. Or if your coolant looks kinda nasty, you may be looking at a headgasket.

My 07 impala is losing anti freeze but nobody can find a leak anywhere how can i solve this problem

if cant find any spots on the ground an you're still losing anti-freeze, from my experience its always been the headgasket, if the headgasket isnt fully blown out your car will seem like its running fine an burn the antifreeze up during the combustion stroke of the engine, or it could be leaking onto the exhaust. check to see if theres any puddles of anti-freeze on top of the engine an check for leaks around the heads. if there is no puddles of leaks it could be your antifreeze is leaking into the engine an burning up during the combustion stroke

I have oil coming from the oil filter houseing unit?

It is possible that it could be leaking oil from the oil filter adapter (Sometimes called housing) where it mounts to the engine block. Leaks here are pretty rare. More likely, your oil pressure sending unit is leaking oil. It screws into the back side of the oil filter adapter and can sometimes make it look like the adapter is leaking.

No oil to back of motor 1992 dodge caravan

You either have a blocked oil line or a blown head gasket blocking the oil line. Check the oil for any signs of white residue. This is a sign of a headgasket leak or break up. Good luck!

Noticed what looks like lithium grease inside the oil fill cap while i was changing the oil..what is it????

this means that you have a headgasket leak flush the system take out the antifreeze fill with just water put in a bottle of block seal / headgasket sealer run the engine for about 3 to 4 hrs then flush out the system again and fill with antifreeze (remember that block seal will clog your system (if) you don't get all the antifreeze out ( read the label on the bottle (autozone carries block seal) about 25;00 bucks

Im losing anti freeze i looked under the car and

If the engine is the same as the 2002 Impala 3.8L engine, the problem is most likely cracked connectors where the coolant enters the engine block. There are two L-shaped plastic connectors that connect the coolant lines through the metal block attached to the tensioner arm to the engine block. Common problem and parts are available from the dealer for under $20, but takes several hours of disassembling and specific torque specs. Just replaced mine over the summer.
