The oil could be power steering fluid. May have a leaking power steering hose, check the fluid level in the power steering pump. Also check all the idler pulleys, and the belt tensioner, more than likely they need to be replaced. But make sure and clean the pulleys with some brake clean to get all the oil off, clean the belt also before putting it back on after fixing the problem.
