My car has been leaking oil ever since i bought it. The guy that sold it to me said it was the oil pan, but it is actually coming from where the OMP was blocked off. There is a brand new gasket under the block off plate, so i dont think that it is coming from there. Is there anywhere else it could be coming from in that area???

If he used a paper gasket that could be the reason. Some paper gaskets will soak and become soft not holding the seal as well. My guess is the gasket has just soaked oil and is now no longer sealing properly and oil is leaking from there like you say. Bring it over to my house this weekend and we'll pull it, put some gasket maker on there fresh and re-seal it. If that doesn't fix it then we'll know to look somewhere else.
