Oil leak? pan or valve cover? placed cardboard template under oil pan-shows oil all over area template?

there are only but a few leak points, on this water cooled engine.
  1. valve cover gasket tops list.
  2. the 2 distributor o-rings, leaks down bell housing.
  3. or the distributor base housing not mounted and sealed by the book. (need book?)
  4. front cam seal (cover off look)?
  5. front crank seal (or the bolt was never set to 94ft/lbs, torque. 17mm head bolt.
  6. pan never leaks its glued on day one in the Cami factory with RTV, unless prev. owner fiddled with it. (new oil pump done wrong)
  7. last it the rear oil seal, rear to leak.

there are only 2 way sto find leaks, get it clean, drive short distance.
see what leaks.
use the dye kit, a kit with UV lamp and dye, pack.

id do a #! valve cover, the 60k mile inspection , adds one, and most of these cars get on 60k service, ever , so the gaskets are all hard.
and useless on every one ive ever seen.

Started leaking oil apparently from top end near oil filter housing ,have replaced ring gasket every oil chnge. still unable to find leak. car has 110,000 km,meticuasly maintained any probables would be...

You will need to clean the area very well and watch for the leak while it's running. Most common leak cause is accidental double gasketing, where the old gasket remained on the filter pad and the new one was installed on top of it. i have also seen (but rarely) an oil filter with a defect in the casing. If your filter is mounted to an extension housing on the block, the gasket there can also leak.
You need to look though. 'Can't fix it if you don't know what it is!!!

Looks like the oil is leaking out right above the

oil filter screws onto an adapter housing which also has the pressure sending unit on it (above oil filter). This adapter housing bolts to the block with 3 bolts. if oil appears to be leaking from where the adapter housing meets the block (especially at the rear side of engine near bottom), then you need to replace the siamese o-rings between the adapter housing and the block ($12 part at dealer). remove lowest 12mm bolt and loosen top 2 12 mm bolts(top 2 bolts won't come out unless you drop the engine down, but loosening 1 inch is all you need), replace o-rings and retighten bolts. be careful not to get dirt/grit between block and adapter. just finished doing this to son's 95 2.7 v6 which was leaving an 8" puddle of oil after idling for only 1 minute-worked perfect
