Default leaks back!

hey tech,
remember that leak that I had a few months back, it's back!!! nothing major still, but just enought to cover the under body protector and drip onto my drive way. Doesn't look like the valve covers are leaking, but the area where the plugs and coils are have oil in them. I've had to replace the coils because the oil dateriorated them. where could it be comming from. Could the vent box be plugged and causing the oil to come up via the fill cap? car runs great other than that, never shows me that it needs oil, just that annoying leak.

Is it a little leak that happens in the middle of the car area? I had a leak like that, and it turned out to be the Trans pan gasket.

you know I thought that would've been it, but I had the tranny serviced not too long ago, it's not red fluid. It's motor oil, just can't see where its comming from.

Sorry soemhow I missed the first post.

Yes very possible the Vent box is clogged and making the oil come out of the oil cap.
Then it would run down the back of the engine.
