Default Passenger Side Oil Leak

I Have an 2004 Pt that recently had the oil sending unit replaced.... It is now leaking oil on the passenger side down into the plastic shroud. It has to be leaking from somewhere near the top of the engine because it looks like or sounds like rather it is leaking onto one of the belts. The car has 112,000 miles on it and this only problem we have ever had with it other than the sending unit. There is no oil on the oil pan, and no oil coming from the new sending unit. Anyone ever had this problem?? I was thinking it might be coming from the valve cover??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Other than that the car than that the car is running great.....

Ever replace your PCV valve? It's right by the oil full cap - has a hose that goes over to air intake. Either PCV valve or hose could be shot.
