Hello. I would have to see the vehicle to know for sure but it sounds like you have a leak from the oil filter housing. Most of the time it leaks here when the o-rings wear out though it is also possible that the housing has warped from heat. I would usually replace the seal first and if that does not solve it I replace the housing.
