if there is oil on the engine above the flywheel then it can be one of three things, valve cover seal, cam seal, or a head gasket.

if ther is not oil on the engine above the flywheel, it can be one of three other things, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, or input shaft seal. i assume u have to add oil to the engine, and not the tranny? if so then you can ignore the input shaft seal, because u would be leaking tranny oil.
