I just bought a 1993 Ford Festiva. It is fuel injected and seems to run good except there is a lot of oil leaking from somewhere. Under the car The majority of oil in the ground is just about centered left to right and just behind the engine, with some oil closer to the timing area. There is oil all over the engine, On top (a lot) back side(a lot) front right(a little and front left (medium amount) I went to advance and gut there said looked like a valve cover gasket, so I replaced it and still leaks bad. Any ideas where the oil is coming from?

Do you
have the same problem?

Clean the engine off with Gunk or something similar. Once it is clean, then check to see where it is leaking from. It may be the oil pan.
