Default 2001 2.3 Ranger Oil Leak

I climbed under the truck today and noticed that there is oil all over the tranny and oil pan (and very little oil still in the truck). It has been leaking while it is running as there have been no puddles on the ground while parked that I have noticed. While looking for possible leak locations, I noticed that the leak comes from further up as the electrical connector for my O2 sensor has oil on it and I felt some pools of oil on the block near the sensor connector. Anyone have any idea where it could be coming from? Thanks for your help in advance!

It might be your oil sending unit, replace the oil thats lost, then start it up and watch if oil runs out of the sending unit, or some other place, could be the valve cover gasket too.

The truck is right in front of you, find where the oil is going by looking and using a mirror.
