I am noticing a minor oil leak behind and below the power steering reservoir.  It's motor oil and not power steering fluid.  Is the oil sending unit located in that general vacinity?  If not any ideas on the possible cause? Thanks in andvance for your input.

if its not from the oil filter seal its most likely the seal for the oil filter housing.it bolts to the side of the engine but you will have to see if the leak is coming from something lower.if not then its the seal
