Unhappy oil pressure sending unit?

Can anyone tell me if it is possible for the sending unit to leak oil, badly? After i go on a cruise, there seems to be a spot of oil on the ground , and the harder i drive it , the more oil on the ground , well i look under the car, and realize the oil is running down the bellhousing, now some of you are thinking intake manifold oil leak, but i've recently had that repaired . So just wondering if anyone has had this type of problem with lt1 powered f-cars. Any info is appreciated.

Possible? Yes. Use a mirror to take a look.

Let's hope that manifold leak repair worked.
