Could be a number of things....pics would be helpful.
Are you sure it's engine oil and not A/C refrigerant? There is oil in the refrigerant and it makes a mess when you blow a line...

Went out and looked and hoses look okay but looking closer found the seal blown on the rear air compessor case, not the o ring for the tubes but the case. This explains why there was oil on the top of the valve cover and air cleaner and the a/c quit working just before that. Never saw a seal blow there before. This explains the noise, it was under pressure. Now I have two problems, a/c compessor and engine oil leak, which is just typical. I never thought abought a/c. Thank you for your help.
