big oil leak...... NEED HELP

Noticed big oil leak last week when driving e30. When I looked under the hood, there was a massive oil build up near the oil filter housing and oil valve. I did some reading and a lot of people were telling me the oil valve gasket is a common problem, as well as the gasket between the oil filter housing connecting to the block. So I changed both and it did nothing for the leak. As I continued to look I started seeing oil drip down the oil sensor wire. The wire connects somewhere to the block and concluded that's where the leak is coming from. Does anyone have advice as to fixing the leak? any help is appreciated
Thank you
