Oil pan gasket or the cover to the timing chain/water pump area cover gasket. Those are the ones that leak the most on the 3.5L engine. They become hard and crusted or work was done and gasket was not replaced. Hope this helps.

If you are seeing oil build up on the starter motor, then another known oil leak area is the gasket between the oil filter adapter and engine block (part 422 on the diagram below) GM Part 12607947

I have the same problem rear camshaft seal is leaking all over the place I bought at 205 re- seal I was told by a very trusted mechanic this will work I haven't put it in yet since you have to drive it awhile afterwards I was advised 50 miles at least and I haven't had the time yet my husband did use thia in his 72 dodge for leaks and it did the job hope this helps

I always had a leak but never enough to puddle. A guy had me replace the valve seals. Now I puddle…couldn’t put my thumb on it and then I realized they put in 5 qts of oil into my engine!! It’s 4 qts! I am hoping that once the extra half a quart is removed it quits puddling! Make sure if you have this car they do not over fill your oil because it will find a way out! (Your seals!!) UGH!!!!
