Take the oil filter off and see if you only have one gasket there, sometimes the old gasket get stuck on the motor and you actually have two oil filter gaskets causing a leak.

I checked that....... Is there supposed to be a gasket between the oil filter mounting plate and the engine

could be the oil sending unit had that just happen to a jeep cherokee of mine it was shooting oil like a upside down waterfall thought it was a big problem but turned out to be the oil sending unit and it's not hard at all to fix
