start by process of elimination. drive to a dry area and see where first drip occurs. left hand side ? etc lift hood examine where oil is contaminating eg cyl head? block? left side? near oil filter? etc thus giving an idea of a section of engine or oil leak is originating from. we may have to try cleaning area down and rechecking if oil is everywhere.

Possibly oil pan, drain plug, gasket? Inspect the engine and lift the car up.

First put down a bed sheet or a large cardboard box ripped open under the front end to verify where the large leak is coming from. To fix where the leak is coming from the engine would have to come out to be rebuilt then put back in.

Sometimes an engine can get so messy that it's hard to tell where it's leaking from. Take it to a car wash and clean the engine off and then recheck it for leaks. It will be easier to see where it's leaking from if the engine is clean.
