Cool Oil leak above filter housing

Anybody seen or know about oil leak from above oil filter housing. 2007 Saturn Aura 3.5. I cleaned filter and all around housing, start engine, and oil right away starts leaking. But coming down from above filter housing. Took side covers off, but can't see where it is coming from.

The oil pressure sensor sits above the oil filter housing, thats probably whats leaking.

Re: Oil leak above filter housing

Yes I found the problem.... It was the gasket between the filter housing and the engine block. Was pretty easy to change.
