Question: What's wrong with my truck?

For any of you mechanics out there, I have a perplexing problem someone may know. I have a 1991 Toyota Pickup with more than 362K miles on it. Just recently I got the engine leak resolved, but the check engine light is on and my Toyota mechanic hasn't been able to resolve the issue. So my wife and I examined the vehicle today and on the right side, where the gas tank is, there is a liquid the consistency and smell of oil leaking out of both the front passenger side and back side tire wells. The engine appears completely dry. Does anyone have a guess as to what is going on?
