Itís possible that itís from the oil filter cap, that has an aftermarket one, but also from the oil filter housing. Very common leak area, also I would inspect the serpentine belt, these tend to shred if oil soaked, and can be sucked into the engine thru the front seal.

Damn man i just searched the ďdoorman oil filter capĒ and it leaks oil. I did not know that was an aftermarket oil filter cap.
