check carefully and think back.... if the oil started leaking soon after your last oil filter change, could just be an oil filter screwed in the wrong way, unless what you have is the element type, of course. Then there's the base gaskets... they're known to leak also.
I would clean the oil leaks with brake cleaner; then start the car so u can visually see where the leaks actually comes from.
on the average, the job to remove and replace housing &/or filter adapter involves 2.7hrs labor(multiply that by your fave shops hourly rate)
