"why is it leaking" - common causes are a bad valve cover gasket or a leaking oil pressure sending unit. Where is the oil coming from?

Iagree with valve cover gasket leak

There a few reasons why? One could be your front seal on your crank. 2) your oil pump seal or the rubber seal that is in between the block and the pump. 3) cam seal could be leaking ? But more than likely it's number 2 is a common problem for the 2.2 engine.
