Look around the sides of the motor. Aleros are famous for faulty pan gaskets. Ours has been in the shop twice for this. If the mechanic doesn't get it put in just right it will continue to leak.

If their is black smoke from the tail pipe then it's over fueling. First check is the air filter if it's o.k. then get the fuel system checked. You should be getting 30 to 35 mpg but if you have a bodykit and wide wheels fitted depending on the type of kit and wheel's it can take up to 10 mpg more to run it. If it has a lot of mile's on it and no service history the engine and injection system may be worn leaving it with less power ond more fuel. Your mecanic will do a compresion test for you which check's ware in your engine. As for the oil problem sorry I can't advise as I don't know where you see the oil but after washing it should be easily seen unless it is comming from behind a casing or someone may have spilled a bit when changing or topping up.

Overfilled is not good but it would have to be very high to cause leak,There are numerous places in rear of engine that could be leaking.could be leaking from rear of intake,the oilpump drive o ring,but most likly leaking from rear main seal that seals at the rear of the crankshaft and the transmission will need to come out to access this seal. you will need to have the oil leak diagnosed to locate the exact spot.
