Oil leak...need help

Ok so my jeep has been leaking a ton of oil. I replaced the rear main, oil pan and valves cover gasket. The oil filter housing is leaking too. But oils is still leaking from the upper part of the motor and I have no idea what it could be. Any suggestions?

Depending on the year, I have a '95 XJ and the oil pressure sensor is right above the filter. I actually broke it clean off the 1st time I changed the oil cuz its plastic. If its even cracked, that may be an issue. $15 or $20 to replace it.

The most common oil leak is on a jeep xj is the oil filter adapter. Which requires a torx 60 to remove. And only costs a $1 for the o thing to do to see if its that I let it run. crawl underneath and look where the oil filter is.

Just curious, did you ever find/fix your leak? If so, what was the problem? I have a similar problem but it's not leaking that bad. I think it's a head gasket.
