Oil leak at Oil Sending Unit

I have a 95 YJ 2.5L and I'm trying to pinpoint the source of an oil leak. I pressure washed the motor today and am going to keep an close eye on it for the next few days. There did seem to be quite a bit of oil around the oil sending unit area. My question to all: Is the oil sending unit a common place to have a leak? Anyone else had trouble at that spot?

yes they can drip. wash and clean the oil sender and put a piece of kitchen papper around it. if after a bit of driving the papper is oily you have found your leek. if it is dry you have eliminated the sender as the problem. good luck
