You proably have a leaking rear main seal if it's the actual backend of the engine where it mounts to the transaxle. If it's the side of the engine near the bulkhead cheack the oil filter and oil cooler (if fitted)

Oil and transmission fluid mixing and leaking from under car 99 Buick century and now car will not change gears

you need to look at the tranny cooler located in radiator that's the only way tranny fluid can get out but how its crossing over to motor oil im not sure unless you also have a motor oil cooler in the radiator.and that will cause tranny problems ,don't try to drive till you resolve these issues., my other thought is oil is leaking out back of motor and mixing with leaking tranny fluid, try draining tranny first to see if motor oil is really in tranny.

2002 tahoe back of motor oil leak, already changed rear main

If you have oil running down the side of the block (from above the oil pan) check the lower edge of the valve cover. Those gaskets often fail to seal when the fasteners eventually work themselves loose

Check the fasteners that secure the valve cover to the heads. Torque to 3 ft lbs.

If the leak persists... replace the gasket.

Oil leaking from behind the motor

if the oil is leaking when the vehicle is running the rear main seal ,between the engine and transmision is leaking. if not maybe there is a oil pressure switch at the back of the engine leaking ,or the valve cover gasket is leaking near the back of the engine , have the engine steam cleaned then you will see where it is leaking ,

Oil geting on flywheel an starter, burning oil like crazy

willie05: sounds to me like you have a leaking rear main oil seal.
If the oil is dripping out at the bottom of the motor and appears to be sourced from where the back of the engine and the front of the transmission mate together, that is your problem. Sometimes if the leak has been going on for a while, the under side of the engine and transmission may be covered with oil because of the wind turbulence caused by the car in motion had been blowing it all over the under side. It may take you washing the under side if the motor off or getting it done, to spot the leak more easily.
A valve cover gasket leak will also cause oil to run dow the back of the motor. However, it usually won't get on the flywheel.
Good Luck. Let me know how things turn out.

I have a oil leak on my 1990 buick skylark 2.5 motor coming from the back side of the motor i replaced the oil pan gasket the sending unit what could it be and how can i find it

I've had the same problem on other GM V6 motors. You need to have the rear main seal replaced to fix the leak. GM was notorius for oil leaks in those motors since the mid-80's and never did anything to fix the problem.
