I am leaking oil please help

I drove my truck the other day and came back in to my garage later and noticed a huge oil puddle under the oil reservoir and the torque converter. I drove it again today and the same thing. I can't really see any oil from the top of the engine but from the bottom it looks like it is coming from left of the oil reservoir where the torque converter meets the engine block. Is this common? Any suggestions?

I will have to look at it better tomorrow. Where is the oil cooler located? What does it look like?

Rarely rear main.
Oil cooler is a cylinder, with the oil filter at the end. Driver side.

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

There are large (about 2" diameter with a 1/2" square-drive recess) plugs on the ends of the heads (both front and rear) that like to leak. Check these areas on the rear of each head. They seal the High Pressure Oil Rails in the heads (so if they leak, they can leak a bunch of oil). Cheers!
