One of the best ways to find an oil leak is to clean the engine and the under side. then wait a day or so to see where fresh oil is dripping. If it is leaking from the oil pan it could lose bolts. But try cleaning the engine and under side before you do any thing it makes it alot easier to find small leaks or big leaks. :thumbs:

Easy fix... find the leak before you try to repair it. :thumbs:

have to agree with other posting's the info is not much to go on
the oil pan could have pin hole's in it (rusted)
the valve covers could be leaking down the side of the engine
you may have over tigtened the oil pan gasket and split it
there to many posibilities
need to wash it down and recheck
