Okay, when you say "oil leak", most people will assume engine oil. You have to be more specific.

If your CV boot is ripped, you'll get a thick, black grease on stuff (if it's thrown off the CV joint).

If your power steering is leaking, you'll get a very thin, almost clear oil on stuff.

If it looks kinda black/brown, and it's not very thin, not very thick, it's most likely engine oil, form somewhere. If it's reddish, or red/brown it's most likely transmission fluid.

You're going to have to narrow it down for anyone to be able to help you.

Clean the area really well, get it f-ing spotless. Then, look for whatever, and wherever is leaking.

If your power steering fluid is dark brown, you're going to need to flush it. That's not good.

Clean that part of your engine really well, and then look for the leak. If necessary, put some talc/baby powder/(cocaine;)) on the engine (after you clean it) and try to find the leak that way.
