oil on my air filter

I Have 93 Caprice 5.7 350 And I Have Oil On My Air Filter, Does Anybody Know What Would Cause That To Happen?

And Im Leaking Oil Right Above My Trans, I Changed My Valve Cover Gaskets And Im Still Leaking, Could It Be My Intake Manifold Gasket?

it could be the intake manifold, or the oil sending unit.
as far as oil on your air filter, that also could be from the front of the intake leaking and the fan blowing the oil back to the air filter.

Clean it up good and install a new pcv valve. The side that's leakinf is where air is allowed to go in as the pcv sucks but is also vents uncer conditions when the pcv can't suck it all up. If the pcv isn't clogged, either your engine is really tired or you are hammering it a lot.
