The oil is probably the common oil cooler lines leaking. Somewhat cheap fix. You need two parts and they're $26 each on gmpartsdirect.com. I'd have to look up the part numbers if you need them.

Xtremerevolution, If you happen to get those part numbers, I'd like them too. Mine is not currently leaking, but based on what everyone'* saying, I should expect them to start at any time!!
