There is a high failure rate on the oil filter cooler seals, aftermarket makes a kit for your engine and are readily available from most parts stores. On my Tahoe it was the O-Ring that took a dump.

Is it running down from above? May be the value covers, or just the oil filter. Check to make sure there is only one oil ring used on the filter. Sometimes the old one is stuck and not removed. Follow the oil trail and see where it is coming from. If above, it may be a gasket, even the intake manifold may be wrapping. They are made of plastic you know.
