    Sometimes the oil filter will leak if it is not tightened enough, or if the gasket was not oiled before installation. And every once in a while, an oil filter will have a tiny crack or pin hole in it; which means it must be replaced. If there is a gasket near that spot; such as the valve cover gasket, it also might be seeping. The oil filler cap can also seep oil. You need to clean the motor and then watch it carefully to see just where the oil begins to come from.
