Are you sure it's oil and not transmission fluid?

well... it's not red (or even red-ish) and it doesn't smell like trans fluid.
I would definitely check and compare it to what's on your transmission dipstick. These cars have a habit of clogging transmission vents and puking fluid out of the dipstick tube.

Hawaii, click on the search feature at the top of this page and type in: plugged transmission vent. Rickpark has a good tutorial with pics. The write-up may also be in the topic finder (also at the top) listed under transmissions. Might also be in the wiki (accessed through the home page also at the top).
As much fun as it is to tell the newbs to search. It's not exactly hard to post the link.
