    Several possibilities; camshaft seal leak, front cover gasket leak, timing cover seal (round seal that prevents oil from leaking around the harmonic balancer).

    Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the timing cover gasket set from around $10.00 and the camshaft seal from around $2.00 for your vehicle.

    Also, to gain familiarity with your engine and it's design - obtain a repair manual; local library auto reference section, or these websites; www.manualspace.com or diyrepairmanuals.com.
