Have you taken the tray off yet and looked? These are just two common guesses...

One common isssue is oil housing since you mentioned left side (drivers side), they start real slow but when severly bad leak enough to drip (maybe you lack a tray and its a direct drop to the ground.

If you ment passenger side it could be a valve cover gasket, leaking enough to run down, ever smell the oil burning?

Either way I don't think you'd be doing the work yourself, time to get it looked at. Neither is a major job just a little time consuming on the oil housing side.
