Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have an oil change. Replace the oil filter after you drain all of the oil for the filter's rubber seal is surely worn out that's why it's leaking. You'll be good after the procedure.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Make sure the mating surface is clean, next lube the gasket in the oil filter with some fresh oil using your finger. Tighten 1 1/2 turns after gasket contacts. If this doesn't work it might not be the filter that's the problem...

Leaking oil from around a small plug near the oil


This is the oil pressure sending unit.

The easiest thing to do is get a new one, remove the old wone, and install the new one.

The oil is supposed to be kept separate from the electrical part, but sometimes they spring an internal leak. Replacing is easier than trying to get really specific about just where the oil is coming from. And once you do get specific, you almost always reach the same finding: a new unit is needed.

HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.


Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.
