well,.............. best bet. get a rag, wipe down the block of the excess oil. run it with it in park, and look in that area. slowly raise your rpms till you find it. might be as simple as the oil dipstick is not in all the way, could be a leaky valve cover gasket, or something else, like a bad pcv valve.

best way to find it is clean it and look.
