jaemil369 is cool... so far.
oil leak somewhere

Just did upper and lower tube seals and valve cover gasket. I notice a oil spot under my car when I leave it parked for a couple days, any ideas???

oil pressure sensor, or maybe your oil filter is not on tight enough. either way they both leak from the same area (pressure sensor is right above filter and is common to go)

I got a leak too... Doesn't appear serious. Only happens when oil is hot and viscous. I'm 80% sure it's the oil pan gasket and also the oil apparatus above the filter, hopefully nothing major.

check by the distributor, i hear the o-ring there likes to leak down onto the tranny.

I'd also suggest checking the oil pressure switch above the oil filter.

Where specifically under the car? Best thing to do is to clean the engine, then you'll be able to trace it better. Follow the oil up and forward. Under the left end could be crank, cam, or balance shaft seals, under the joint between the engine and tranny could be distributor or rear main seal. Head gasket and oil pan gasket could leak almost anywhere around. As mentioned above, if under the center back of the engine, could be oil pressure switch, oil cooler (if EX) seal.
